Waco Pets Who Need A Home: Rooney, Hercules, Tank & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a 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 fulfill adoptions.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local adoption center like Humane Society Of Central Tx, where Rocky 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 ROONEY, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
