Adopt A Pet From Bedford Area Shelters: See The Latest Dogs, Cats

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good…

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Bedford community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for an adorable new friend, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Animal Rescue League Of New Hampshire, where Jake the dog 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 dog person, meet Arya, a Shepherd mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
