Gig Harbor Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Elmo & More

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Washington — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Rabbit Haven, where Lola And Tim the rabbit 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.

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.
