Plano Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Petey, Georgina, Picadilly & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Plano and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Texas — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Adopt A Husky Of Dallas Inc, where Mr. Murphy the dog is waiting patiently. 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 Petey, a Pit Bull 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.
