Latest Pets Up For Adoption In The Columbia Area

11 min read

Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Columbia and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in South Carolina — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like City Of Columbia Animal Services, where Hanna 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 in permanent 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 cat person, meet Magenta, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
