Do you want to add a furry friend to your family? Look no further than these Gig Harbor animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Pet adoption agencies in Gig Harbor and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.
Millions of pets are given to animal rescue organizations each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all shelter pets are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. On a search for a new family member? Consider beginning at a local shelter like Chew Dog Rescue Canine Health Education And Welfare, where Duke the dog 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.
