See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Bellaire Area Shelters

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the Bellaire community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Bellaire and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Texas — many of whom are located near you. In the search for a new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center like Waiting Under The Willow Foundation Wuwf Rescue, where Brindi the dog is waiting patiently. 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.

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