Windsor Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Serrano, Smokey 2021, Leon & More

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Windsor and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Connecticut — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, where Rooney 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 Serrano, a Domestic Short 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.
