Somerville Pet Adoption: Meet Mallory, Callie & More

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Somerville area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Kitty Connection Inc, where Biscotti the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Mallory, 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.
