Roswell Area Pets Who Need A Home: Dogs, Cats, More

Published on: 09/02/2022

Description

Looking to add a shaggy ball of four-legged love and affection to your family? Look no further than these Roswell animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Facilities in and around Roswell have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Millions of pets are surrendered to adoption facilities each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals in search of a permanent home as well, including pigs, birds and even horses.

However, only around half of all shelter pets are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Roswell area — are still waiting for their forever homes.

With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.

Find out what's happening in Roswellwith free, real-time updates from Patch.

Click on any listing to learn more about a pet or to start the adoption process.

Editor’s note: This list was automatically generated using data compiled by Petfinder. If you're a local shelter looking to see your adoptable pets appear on Patch, you'll need to list them through Petfinder. All readers are encouraged to report errors or other feedback to [email protected].
