Golden Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Buck, Kaia, Logan & More

13 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Golden and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Colorado — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new fur child is at Safe Harbor Lab Rescue, where Logan the dog 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Buck, a Black Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or 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.
