Augusta Pets Who Need A Home: Tom, Stumps, Minou & More

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Augusta and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Maine, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like Midcoast Humane, where Leia the dog 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Tom, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
