Knoxville Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Mac, Shelly, Grams & More

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Knoxville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local facility like Young Williams Animal Center, where Teresa the cat 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 appropriate homes.

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 cat person, meet Mac, 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.
