Montville Pets Who Need A Home: Sox, Magpie & More

Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in Montville and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Connecticut — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new family member is at Norwich Animal Control, where Magpie the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 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 KITTENS! KITTENS! KITTENS! PLEASE READ POST AND VIEW PICTURES!, 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.
