Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Somerville community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Somerville Rescue, where Apollo 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Millie, a Tiger 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.
