Plano Pets Who Need A Home: Mr. Max, Carl, Doodle & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Plano community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new companion is at Boston Terrier Rescue Of North Texas, where Doodle the dog 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.

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 Mr. Max, a Boston Terrier 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.
