Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new friend is at Funny Farm Rescue Ranch, where Arrow the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

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