Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Enumclaw area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.
Across Washington, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Lalas Playhouse And Rescue, where Dexter the rabbit 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.
If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, meet Wonderful Winston, an American Staffordshire Terrier mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too.
