See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Hobart Area Shelters

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive…

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Hobart community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Hobart are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for your new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Guardians Of The Green Mile Inc, where Aurora 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 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 cat person, meet Iva, a Tortoiseshell up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
