Arnold Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Mystic, Iris, Tigger & More

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around Arnold have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Missouri — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like Act Now Rescue, where Star 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up 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 Mystic, a Husky 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.
