Pet Adoption In The Danvers Area: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Danvers community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like The Odd Cat Sanctuary, where Ranger 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.

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 Mittens, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
