Adopt A Pet From Kansas City Area Shelters: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

·13 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Kansas City community at the same time? Perhaps it's time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Missouri, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Kansas City Kansas Animal Control, where Tammy 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 round up 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 Cassius, a Pit Bull 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.
