Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Animal shelters in and around Rocky Hill have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.
About 6.5 million pets are surrendered or taken in each year by animal shelters nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only half of all shelter animals — about 3.2 million — are adopted each year, ASPCA data shows. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Rocky Hill area — are still waiting for their forever homes.
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 Kirby, a Maine Coon mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
Click on any listing to learn more about a pet or to start the adoption process.
