Weston Area Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Quinn & More

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to…

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Massachusetts — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Best Friends Furever, where Tucson 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 in permanent homes.

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, meet ELSA— sweet goofy girl!, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
