Johns Creek Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Max Moose, Blue, Great With Dogs, Kids & Everyone!, Milo, Lovable And Loving Family Boy! & More

·14 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During 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, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Georgia — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Mush Rescue Inc, where Howie 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 MAX MOOSE, a Pit Bull 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.
