Adopt A Pet From Media Area Shelters: See New Dogs, Cats & More

·16 min read

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Media community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around Media are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Pennsylvania — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Animal Coalition Of Delaware County, where Tuppence the cat 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.

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 cat person, meet Marc, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
