New Port Richey Pets Who Need A Home: Vanilla, Mushroom, Mellow & More

10 min read

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in New Port Richey and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new friend is at The Runaways Animal Rescue, where Mellow the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you 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 Vanilla, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
