La Vergne-Smyrna Pet Adoption: Meet Sammy, Danni Marie & More

Pet News

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the La Vergne-Smyrna community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

In the search for your new fur child, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Safe Place For Animals Spa, where Watson 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet SAMMY, a Norwegian Forest Cat up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
