Darien Pets Who Need A Home: Billy, Cole, Baxter & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Darien community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Darien area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Animal Nation Inc, where Tinsel the cat 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 put together 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 Billy, a Chihuahua 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.
