Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Concord and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.
There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Massachusetts — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at Guardian Angels Cat Rescue Inc, where Bolt the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in appropriate homes.
Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Bingo, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
