Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in and around West Roxbury are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new friend is at Mspca Boston Animal Care And Adoption Center, where Iroh the rat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
