Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Conroe-Montgomery County Area

Pet News

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Conroe-Montgomery County community at the same time? Maybe it's time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Conroe-Montgomery County area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — 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 Central Texas Dachshund Rescue, where Sour Patch 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, meet A1734640, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier 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.
