Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters 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 of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new fur child is at Dog Star Rescue, where Stanley the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

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 dog person, meet Kemper, a Black Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
