Weston Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Gabby, Alex, Royce & More

11 min read

Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Weston area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Massachusetts — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new family member is at Ellen M Gifford Sheltering Home, where Royce the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

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 Gabby, a Domestic Short 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.
