Wakefield Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Imogene & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world…

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new family member is at Paws, where Cornucopia the cat 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Imogene, 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.
