Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Manchester community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Connecticut — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local adoption center like The Queenie Foundation Inc, where Oscar 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.

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 cat person, meet Tinkerbelle, a Domestic Medium 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.
