Seattle Pets Who Need A Home: Muffin, Sonny, Baxter & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Seattle community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Washington — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new companion is at Dog Gone Seattle, where Baxter the dog 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Muffin, a Shepherd mix up for adoption. 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.
