Temple Terrace Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Serena & More

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at a 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Serena, a Burmese mix up for adoption. 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.
