Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the New Canaan community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the New Canaan area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at Paws Pet Animal Welfare Society, where Zoey 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.

If you 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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
