Trumbull Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Zeb, Bones, Missy & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Connecticut — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Final Victory Animal Rescue, where Missy the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 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 Zeb, a 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.
