Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across New Hampshire — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at Lowell Humane Society, where Notorious P.i.g. the guinea pig 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create 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 Octavia, a Labrador Retriever 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.
