Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Newington community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in Newington and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider looking around at a local adoption center like Great Divide Animal Rescue Inc, where Jaylin 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.

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