Pet Adoption In The Marion Area: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

8 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Iowa, 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 a new family member is at Adopt A Pal Animal Rescue, where Dorothy 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Rose, 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.
