Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Clinton and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new family member is at Labs4rescue, where Jipsy 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 cat person, meet Mikey B, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
