Crofton Pets Who Need A Home: Mira, Astro & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Crofton area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Maryland — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Saving Grace Animal Rescue Of Maryland, where Prego 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Yami bear, 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.
