Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At Swampscott Area Shelters

12 min read

Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Swampscott area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider beginning at a local facility like Northeast Animal Shelter, where Buddy the dog 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 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 INDIGO, a Siamese 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.
