Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the West Haven community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a new family pet, consider checking out a local adoption center like Underhound Railroad, where Elvis 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 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 cat person, meet #99 Mayfield, 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.
