Stratford Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Shelby, Killian, Ronan & More

12 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 pet from a local shelter. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Stratford area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider starting at a local shelter like Stratford Animal Control, where Ronan the rabbit 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create 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 Shelby, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
