Enumclaw Pet Adoption: Meet Ollie, Tucker, Raggedy Andy & More

Pet News
·15 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Enumclaw community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Enumclaw and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Washington, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local facility like Smidget Rescue, where Buddah the dog is waiting patiently. 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.

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, you might like Ollie, a 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.
