Braintree Pets Who Need A Home: Little Nugget Naz, Terrific Teddy And Bear, Dr Cornelia Cloud & More

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Braintree are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like The Sato Project, where Sammy 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 in permanent homes.

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 cat person, meet Little Nugget Naz, a Tuxedo 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.
