Adopt A Pet From Palmer-Forks Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Palmer-Forks area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new friend is at The Center For Animal Health And Welfare, where Blue the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Zeppo and Chico, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
