Pet Adoption In The Monroe Area: See New Local Pets

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Georgia — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new family member is at Walton County Animal Control, where Shadow the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Sasha, a Cattle Dog 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.
