Wentzville Pets Who Need A Home: Gamora, Mantis, Jaylee & More

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Wentzville community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Wentzville and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Missouri, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new fur child is at Stray Paws Rescue, where Jaylee 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.

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 dog person, meet Gamora, a Pharaoh Hound mix up for adoption. 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.
