See The Latest Adoptable Pets In The Boulder Area

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Boulder community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Boulder and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Colorado, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new family member is at Farfels Farm And Rescue, where Lexi the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Apollo, an American Bully 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.
