Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Milford community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the Milford area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Final Victory Animal Rescue, where Clyde 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Vivian, a Hound 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.
