Adopt A Pet From Montville Area Shelters: See New Dogs, Cats & More

Pet News

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in Montville and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new companion is at Fridays Rescue Foundation, where Bumble the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you're a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
