Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new family member is at Labs4rescue, where Comet #8 the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create 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 Huey #5, 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.
