Want to add a ball of four-legged love and affection to your family and do something good for the Mineola community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a shelter or local organization! Many animal shelters in the Mineola area still strive to complete adoptions and place pets in their homes forever.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more than 6 million pets are taken in by shelters nationwide each year.
Of these, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals looking for a permanent home, including pigs, birds and even horses.
However, only half of all shelter animals – about 3.2 million – are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the Mineola region – are still waiting for their homes forever.
If you need help with your search, Patch and Petfinder are here for you. We compile a weekly list of all animals recently offered for adoption in your area. Whether you love dogs or cats are more your thing, there are several great options available.
