Rocky Hill Adoptable Pets: Meet Archie, Sammy, Luna & More

Looking to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Connecticut — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Funny Farm Rescue Ranch, where Luna 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Archie, a Domestic Short 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.
