Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new fur child, consider checking out a local animal shelter like Halfway Home Rescue Inc, where Ophelia the dog 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Max, 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.
