Solon Pets Up For Adoption: Bosco, Winnie, Newton & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Solon area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Ohio, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at Geauga Humane Society, where Newton the dog 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Bosco, a Domestic Medium 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.
