Bethel Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Sofie Calm Cuddly Sweet Gentle, Sugar, Jango & More

13 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Bethel are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Connecticut — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Danbury Animal Welfare Society Inc Daws, where Quinn 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.

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 cat person, meet Sofie CALM CUDDLY SWEET GENTLE, a Domestic Medium 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.
