Harrison Pets Who Need A Home

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Harrison community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New York, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at a 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
