See The Latest Adoptable Pets In The Groton Area

Pet News

Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it's finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Groton area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new friend is at Fridays Rescue Foundation, where Freya the cat 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.

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, meet Velina, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
