Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Cincinnati Area

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new companion, consider checking out a local shelter like Furgotten Dog Rescue Inc, where Makwa 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.

If you 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, you might like Gemma, a Boxer 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.
