Fairlawn-Bath Pets Who Need A Home: Punkin, Zima, Tank & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Fairlawn-Bath community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Ohio — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new friend is at Ajs Search And Rescue, where Tank the dog 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 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 Punkin, a Calico mix up for adoption. 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.
