Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new companion is at Meriden Humane Society, where Dewey 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 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 cat person, meet Georgie, 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.
