Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Guilford community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in and around Guilford have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local facility like Halfway Home Rescue Inc, where Beckett the cat 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.

If you 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 Lola #30, a Yellow 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.
