Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Lynnfield are still working to fulfill adoptions.
Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new family member is at House Rabbit Network, where Dasher the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 permanent homes.
Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, meet Mina, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too.
