Wilton Pets Who Need A Home: Marcie, Loretta & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. In the search for an adorable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Paws Pet Animal Welfare Society, where Tank 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.

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 Marcie, a Tennessee Treeing Brindle 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.
