Adopt A Pet From Cumming Area Shelters: See New Local Pets

Pet News

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new fur child is at Wags And Wiggles Dog Rescue, where Shadow 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a dog person, meet Karmin, a Boxer 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.
