Palmetto Bay-Cutler Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Atlas*, Gwen, Scrappy & More

5 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Palmetto Bay-Cutler area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Florida — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new friend is at Paws 4 You Rescue Inc, where Scrappy the dog 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 cat person, meet Atlas*, 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.
