Arlington Area Pets Who Need A Home: Memphis, Lizzie, Benjamin & More

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Texas — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Shelter2rescue Coalition, where Hondo 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 in permanent homes.

If you 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 dog person, you might like Memphis, a Labrador Retriever 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.
