Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Newington community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local facility like Funny Farm Rescue Ranch, where Duke 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Hendrix, an Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler 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.
