Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the East Hampton-Portland community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new fur child is at Funny Farm Rescue Ranch, where Molly the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 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.
