Danbury Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Raina, Katie, Huey & More

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Connecticut, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local shelter like Danbury Animal Welfare Society Inc Daws, where Cassie 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 appropriate 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 dog person, meet RAINA, an Anatolian Shepherd 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.
