Arlington Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Ava, Elsa, Dusty & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Arlington have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new fur child, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Shelter2rescue Coalition, where Tracker 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.

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 Ava, a Poodle 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.
