Smithfield Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Jimmy, Sabrina, Samantha & More

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Rhode Island — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like New England Humane Society, where Dozer 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 permanent homes.

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 cat person, meet Jimmy, a Domestic Short 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.
