Pet Adoption In The Barrington Area: See The Latest Dogs, Cats & More

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Barrington community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Barrington and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Rhode Island — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Paws New England, where Bowie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up 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 Bruno Major, a Pit Bull 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.
