Hillsborough Pets Who Need A Home: Peanut, Prince Louie, Pecan & More

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Hillsborough community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new friend is at Capic Cat Adoption And Pet Information Center, where Pecan the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Peanut, 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.
