Brookfield Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Lesa, Skil, Blaine & More

Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Wisconsin — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new family member is at Jrs Pups N Stuff, where Blaine the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Lesa, a Retriever 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.
