Looking to add a shaggy ball of four-legged love and affection to your family? Look no further than these Wethersfield animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Many pound animals are still looking for their forever home and animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.
Over 6 million companion animals are taken in each year by shelters nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals in search of a permanent home as well, including pigs, birds and even horses.
However, only half of all shelter animals — about 3.2 million — are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Wethersfield area — are still waiting for their forever homes.
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. If you’re a dog person, meet BARNEY, a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too.
