Beverly Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Jimmy, Rizita, Ava & Eva & More

11 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new companion is at Friends Of Marbleheads Abandoned Animals, where Ava & Eva the cat 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 in permanent homes.

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 cat person, meet Jimmy, a Domestic Medium 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.
