Want to add to your family and do something good for the Concord community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Concord area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Save A Dog, where Sam 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.

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 dog person, you might like Jazzie, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
