Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Ridgefield community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Ridgefield area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Connecticut — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Looking Glass Animal Rescue, where Liam 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
