Redmond: Pets Available for Adoption at Area Shelters
Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Next, you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Many pets are still looking for their forever home, and shelters are still working to place pets with families.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more than 6 million pets and other pets are pounded each year across the country.
Of these, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals looking for a permanent home, including pigs, birds and even horses.
However, only half of all shelter animals – about 3.2 million – are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the Redmond area – are still waiting for their homes forever.
With the help of our friends at Petfinder, Patch this week compiled a list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you are looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
