Suffield Pets Now Up For Adoption: Whiskers 2020, Blizzard, Rocky & More

Pet News

Want to add to your family and do something good for the Suffield community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new friend is at Fetching Hearts Rescue, where Rocky 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you're a cat person, meet Whiskers 2020, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
