Looking for a new friend? You may find one nearby at the Dedham location of Animal Rescue League of Boston, or at any of the area's other rescues or shelters. Read these profiles and consider increasing your cuddling quotient with one of these animals in search of a forever home.

Maddie: Fan of snuggles and playtime

Maddie is a 5 year-old, large, mixed breed who loves snuggling, playing with plush toys and would love a fenced yard away from the city. She has a high prey drive,  so  should not be in a home with cats or small animals, as she will chase them. For more information about Maddie, click here.

Blackberry: 10 year old cat seeking quiet home with a feline friend

Blackberry has been at the shelter since May 11, 2022 and comes from a home with cats. He's described as a quiet and gentle guy who especially gets along well with female cats. For more information about Blackberry, including videos, click here.

"When you adopt a pet from one of our shelters in Boston, Brewster, or Dedham, you not only give a homeless animal a safe and loving place to live, but also save two lives: the animal you adopt and the animal who can take its place." -- Animal Rescue League of Boston

Dandelion and Puddles: Opposites Who Will Entertain You

Dandelion is like a confident, independent big sister to Puddles, the younger brother who looks to Dandelion to lead the way. While Dandelion is not a fan of being held, Puddles will melt into your lap. They are both litter trained and up to date on vaccinations. For more information on these two, click here.
