New Baltimore-Chesterfield Pet Adoption: Meet Riley, Owen, Zuma & More

Pet News

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it's the right time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in New Baltimore-Chesterfield and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Michigan, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new fur child is at Dawg, where Zuma 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 in appropriate 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 dog person, you might like Riley, a Shepherd 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.
