Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At Lakeland Area Shelters

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Lakeland community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new family member is at Polk County Bully Project, where Gwen the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Lynard, a Mountain Cur 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.
