Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Hamden community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local adoption center like The Greater New Haven Cat Project Inc, where Hamlin 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 dog person, you might like Shelby, an American Staffordshire Terrier up for adoption. Or 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.
