Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Wethersfield community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in the Wethersfield area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Protectors Of Animals, where Porsha 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 in appropriate 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 cat person, meet Katie, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
