Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Worcester community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Worcester have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at No Mutts Left Behind Inc, where Phoenix the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

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 dog person, you might like Twinkie, a Lhasa Apso 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.
