Pet Adoption In The South Whitehall Area: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Pet News
·15 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the South Whitehall community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the South Whitehall area 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 begin your search for your new companion is at Peaceable Kingdom, where Basil the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

If you 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, meet Chewy, a Dachshund mix up for adoption. 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.
