Farmington-Farmington Hills Area Pets Waiting To Be Adopted

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world…

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Michigan, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new fur child is at a local adoption center. 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.

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, you might like Jay Bear 2009, a German Shepherd Dog up for adoption. Or 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.
