Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At North Hills Area Shelters

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the North…

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the North Hills community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in North Hills and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Pennsylvania, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new fur child, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Kitty Queen Cat Rescue, where Sissy 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.

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 cat person, meet Boudicca, 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.
