Looking to add to your family? Look no further than these Mid Hudson Valley animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Shelters in the Mid Hudson Valley area have dogs, cats and other animals ready to wait for someone to bring them home.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more than 6 million pets and other pets are taken in by adoption centers nationwide each year.
Of these, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals looking for a permanent home, including pigs, birds and even horses.
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 Mid Hudson Valley area – are still waiting for their homes forever.
With the help of our friends at Petfinder, Patch this week compiled a 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.
