Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Fairfield community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Connecticut — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a new companion, consider looking around at a local facility like Sweet Adoptables, where Zeppelin 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Peyton, a Labrador Retriever 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.
