Adopt A Pet From Wyandotte Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Wyandotte community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Wyandotte and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Shelter To Home Inc, where Jasmine the cat 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Gary, a Miniature Pinscher up for adoption. Or 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.
