Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Essex-Chester-Deep River have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Connecticut — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Labs4rescue, where Jipsy the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

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 cat person, meet Inky, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
