Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Pawtucket Area

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Pawtucket…

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Pawtucket community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in Pawtucket and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Rhode Island — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for your new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Providence Animal Rescue League, where Nellie the rat 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 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. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
