Dexter Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Dakota, Partly Cloudy, Steffen & More

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Dexter community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new friend, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Kitty Chalet Playhouse Rescue, where Sage the cat 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.

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, meet Dakota, a Coonhound mix up for adoption. 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.
