Suwanee Pets Who Need A Home: Lily, Ava, Whiskers & More

Pet News

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it's finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at Planned Pethood Of Georgia, where Whiskers the cat 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 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 cat person, meet Lily, 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.
