Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Clinton community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Clinton area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Labs4rescue, where Willow #16 the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 appropriate homes.

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 dog person, you might like Nina, a Bullmastiff 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.
