Pet Adoption In The Richmond Area: New Pets Added This Week

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 Richmond community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Rhode Island — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Animal Rescue Rhode Island, where Raven 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.

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 dog person, you might like Brooklyn, a Chihuahua 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.
