Want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in Milford and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many are located in your area. In the search for a new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center like Halfway Home Rescue Inc, where Minerva the cat is waiting patiently. 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
