Lorton Pets Up For Adoption: Lollie, Sigmund, Reilly & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Lorton have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like A Cats Friend Inc, where White Socks 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up 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 Lollie, a Shih Tzu 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.
