Adopt A Pet From Chartiers Valley Area Shelters: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Chartiers Valley area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new family member is at Merlins Safe Haven Cat Rescue, where Remi 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Reilly, a Domestic Medium 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.
