Andover Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Beans, Benni, Craig & More

10 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Andover community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for your new companion, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Mspca At Nevins Farm, where Pistachio the parakeet 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.

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