Pet Adoption In The Barrington Area: New Pets Added This Week

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive…

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Rhode Island — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new fur child is at Paws New England, where Jake the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create 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 Raccoon, an Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler 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.
