Looking to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the Naugatuck community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Spotty Dog Rescue Inc, where Marty 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 put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Fancy Pants, a Tuxedo 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.
