Exeter Pets Now Up For Adoption: Remy, Benny, Carmen & More

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Exeter community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Exeter have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Rhode Island, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for a new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Midnight Run Rescue, where Blu 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 appropriate 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 Remy, a Labrador Retriever 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.
