Arvada Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Cj, Maeve & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Arvada community at…

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Arvada community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Arvada and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Colorado, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new companion is at Planet Pet, where Mason the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 permanent 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 dog person, you might like CJ, a Pekingese up for adoption. Or 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.
