Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Ridgefield community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Ridgefield are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new companion is at Looking Glass Animal Rescue, where Lucas the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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, you might like April, a Terrier 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.
