North Smithfield Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Louie, Lincoln, Avery & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the North Smithfield community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals 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 without a home throughout Rhode Island — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at New England Humane Society, where Avery the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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 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 Louie, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
