Southington Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Hope, Gucci And Vera, Bert And Ernie & More

12 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Southington and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

In the search for your new companion, consider checking out a local adoption center like Rescue Me Small Animal Placement, where Peanut And Sweets the guinea pig 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.

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 dog person, you might like Hope, a Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or 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.
