Yorktown-Somers Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Mikey, Donna, Dax & Jax & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Yorktown-Somers community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across New York, 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 new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Paws For Love Inc, where Mickey 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.

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 Mikey, 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.
