Huntsville Area Pets Who Need A Home: Tansy, Maverick, Brave & More

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Huntsville…

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Huntsville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Alabama, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Greater Huntsville Humane Society, where Brave the dog 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 permanent 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 Tansy, 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.
