Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new friend, consider beginning at a 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 put together 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 Lilo NO MORE APPS, a Chihuahua 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.
