Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Westerly area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a new companion, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Animal Rescue Rhode Island, where Hugo 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Zeus, a Shepherd mix up for adoption. 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.
