West Cobb Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Gandalf, Ace & More

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the West Cobb community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Georgia — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new companion is at Fancy Feline Rescue Of The South Inc, where Ace the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
