Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in and around Newton are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Massachusetts — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Mspca Boston Animal Care And Adoption Center, where Norman 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
