Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Westport community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Westport area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located near you. In the search for your new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Tails The Alliance In Limiting Strays, where Skeeter 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like COURTESY POST FOR WASA: FINN is not at Westport Animal Control. Finn is a WASA foster. Please see post for contact info., a Yorkshire Terrier up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
