Northfield Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Betsy, Georgie, Kalie & More


Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new fur child is at Rescue 55021, where Kalie 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 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 Betsy, 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.
