Stone Mountain-Lithonia Pets Up For Adoption: Beau, Atlas, Augie & More

Pet News

Want to add to your family and give back to the Stone Mountain-Lithonia community at the same time? Maybe it's the right time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Stone Mountain-Lithonia have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Georgia — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new friend is at Oakhurst Guinea Pig Rescue, where Augie the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you're a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
