Plano Pets Newly Up For Adoption: Happy, Reeses, Mattie & More

Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Plano community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Second Chance Spca, where Kurt 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.

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 Happy, a Boston Terrier 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.
