Peters Pets Newly Up For Adoption: Sebella, Margarita, Violet & More

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Peters community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in the Peters area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a new family pet, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Washington Area Humane Society, where Apricot 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 appropriate 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, meet Sebella, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
