Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption In The The Lymes Area

11 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the The Lymes area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new companion is at Petmatchmaker Rescue South, where Guiness the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
