Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At Norwich Area Shelters

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Norwich community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Connecticut — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Petmatchmaker Rescue South, where Zeke On Fleek 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.

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 JADE, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
