Tewksbury Pets Now Up For Adoption: Leo, Chase, Bobby & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Tewksbury community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Massachusetts — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider checking out a local facility like Lowell Humane Society, where Eevee the guinea pig 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 Leo, an American Bully 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.
