Arbutus Pets Who Need A Home: Katy, Luke, Jamie & More

Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at…

Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Arbutus and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Maryland — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new fur child is at Wings Of Love Kuwait, where Jamie the dog 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.

If you 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. If you’re a cat person, meet Katy, 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.
