Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At Silver Spring Area Shelters


Looking to add to your family and give back to the Silver Spring community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the Silver Spring area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local facility like Lovepaws, where Edward the dog is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Flapjack, an Akbash up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
