Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a new family pet, consider looking around at a local facility like A Medfield Animal Shelter, where Khan the cat 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Chloe, 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.
