Columbus Pets Who Need A Home: Coo Coo, Cinnamon, Natasha & More

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Columbus community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new friend is at Roarys Refuge, where Natasha the cat 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Coo Coo, a Dilute Tortoiseshell 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.
