Kingstowne-Rose Hill Area Pets Who Need A Home: Aruba, Poker, Roulette & More

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Kingstowne-Rose Hill have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for a new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Animal Welfare League Of Alexandria, where Champion the cat 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 in appropriate homes.

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 dog person, you might like Aruba, 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.
