Northfield Pets Up For Adoption: Molly, Prancer, Nala & More

·14 min read

Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Northfield area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Minnesota — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Last Hope Inc, where Piper the cat 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 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 Molly, a Poodle 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.
