Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Norwalk community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During 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, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Connecticut — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Paws Pet Animal Welfare Society, where Loretta 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 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 Lizzy, a Tabby 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.
