See The Latest Adoptable Pets In The Avon-Avon Lake Area

·15 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it's the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for your new family pet, consider beginning at a local shelter like The Rescue Inn, where Tannen 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Marmalade, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
