Dexter Pets Newly Up For Adoption

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good…

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Michigan — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center. 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 Mosca & Toki, an Abyssinian 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.
