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

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Solon community at the same time? Perhaps it's finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Ohio — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Geauga Humane Society, where Hans 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 in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Sophie, a Domestic Long Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
