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

Pet News

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Southington community at the same time? Perhaps it's finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at Rescue Me Small Animal Placement, where Dot the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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.

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. If you're a dog person, you might like Smokie, a Catahoula Leopard Dog 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.
