Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week At Stamford Area Shelters

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on…

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the Stamford community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local facility like Friends Of Felines Inc, where Preston the cat 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.

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 Princess, a Shih Tzu 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.
