Pine-Richland Pets Who Need A Home: Chickadee & More

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on…

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Pennsylvania — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new friend is at Trash Cat Rescue, where Greta the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 Cub Cadet, 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.
