Chelsea Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Katie The Great!, Night And Light, Penny & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Chelsea and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new friend is at Animal Lighthouse Rescue, where Penny the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Katie the Great!, a Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
