Braintree Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Buckley, Burt Is The Best, Idyllic Iris & More

11 min read

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Braintree community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Braintree 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 throughout Massachusetts — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new family member is at Paws4survival Rescue Inc, where Idyllic Iris 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.

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 Buckley, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
