Adopt A Pet From Cleveland Area Shelters: New Pets Added This Week

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Cleveland community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally 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.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new friend is at Rainbow Connection Animal Foundation, where Mutt 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Twyla, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
