Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Connecticut — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider starting at a local facility like Paws And Claws New England, where Cali The Cute Kitty the cat 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Raleigh, a Tabby 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.
