Richfield Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Rocket, Stamos & More

12 min read

Want to add to your family and do something good for the Richfield community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Richfield area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Minnesota, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Pet Haven Inc Of Minnesota, where Stamos 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 cat person, meet Rocket, a Domestic Long Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
