Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week In The Fort Myers Area

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Florida — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Gulf Coast Humane Society, where Kitty the cat is waiting patiently, or another local 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 in permanent 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 dog person, you might like Bow, a Catahoula Leopard Dog 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.
