Germantown Adoptable Pets: Meet Penny, Scampi, Geneviere & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local shelter like Knine Rescue Inc, where Stella 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Penny, a Hound 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.
