Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Scituate and environs 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, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Rhode Island — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new companion is at Little Rhody Rescue, where Pearl the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you 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 cat person, meet Hissey, Ace, Ashlee, and Jesse, 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.
