Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Lexington community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at Bullied Breeds Rescue, where Diva the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you 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 dog person, you might like Mia, a Beagle 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.
