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

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Quincy community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new friend is at Quincy Animal Shelter, where Shadow the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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. If you’re a cat person, meet Sammy, 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.
