If you were hoping to add a ball of four-legged love and affection to your family, look no further than these Seekonk-Swansea area animal shelters for a pet you can take home.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more than 6 million pets are returned or taken away by animal rescue organizations nationwide each year. However, only half of all shelter animals – about 3.2 million – are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the Seekonk-Swansea region – are still waiting for their homes forever.
If you need help with your search, Patch and Petfinder are here for you. We have compiled this week the list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you are looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals might be a perfect fit for your family. If you love dogs, you might like Bentley Nikki, a Terrier for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are also several large cats available.
