Northville Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Foxy, King & More

12 min read

Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Northville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Michigan — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Wags And Whiskers, where King the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create 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 Foxy, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
