Hellertown-Lower Saucon Pet Adoption: Meet Oscar, Jacob, Anora & More

Pet News

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Pennsylvania — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new companion is at The Center For Animal Health And Welfare, where Anora the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Oscar, a Cockapoo 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.
