Centreville Pets Who Need A Home: Sherman & Howie, Munchkin, Ozzie & More

11 min read

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Centreville and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Collie Rescue Inc, where Ozzie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 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 Sherman & Howie, a Domestic Short 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.
