Pet Adoption In The Simsbury Area: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Pet News

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Simsbury community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Connecticut — and many are located in your area. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider checking out a local shelter like Great Divide Animal Rescue Inc, where ~Hunky Homer~ 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 permanent 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, meet Teddy, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
