Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Richfield community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Richfield area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Minnesota, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Pet Haven Inc Of Minnesota, where Noel the dog is waiting patiently, or another 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Lily, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
