Looking to add to your family and give back to the Manchester community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Manchester and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Connecticut — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Our Companions Animal Rescue, where Jack 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Pearl and Pewter, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
