Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Hartland community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around Hartland are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Michigan, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new fur child is at Michigan Humane Livingston County, where Loui the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 appropriate 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. If you’re a cat person, meet Tiger, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
