Stoughton Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Milo & Maeve, Tanner, Burt Is The Best & More

11 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local shelter like Paws4survival Rescue Inc, where Idyllic Iris the cat 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
