Attleboro Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Janice, Chamomile & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Attleboro community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Attleboro and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new family member is at Rehoboth Animal Shelter, where Chamomile the cat 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 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 cat person, meet Willow & Onyx, 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.
