Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Melrose community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like House Rabbit Network, where Lady the rabbit 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Sweet Charlotte, 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.
