Lexington Pets Who Need A Home: Bali And Ben! Playful Puppies!, Bongo And Bailey, Playful And Sweet Puppies!!, Rosemary & More

12 min read

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Lexington are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new fur child is at Kitty Connection Inc, where Rosemary the cat 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 permanent 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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Bali and Ben! Playful puppies!, a Mixed Breed 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.
