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. Across Massachusetts, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located near you.
Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Westborough area are still eoman to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
If you're a cat person, meet Mia, an American Shorthair up for adoption. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider looking around at a local facility like Pawswatch Adoptable Cats, where Smokey the cat is waiting patiently. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area.
