Framingham Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Bonnie, Rocky, Kami & More

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 world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Save A Dog, where Kami 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, you might like Bonnie, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
