Pet Adoption In The New London Area: See New Local Dogs, Cats

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the New London community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new fur child is at a local animal shelter. 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.

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 Carly, a Domestic Long Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
