Do you want to add a four legged friend to your family? Look no further than these East Haven animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Local shelters have dogs, cats and other types of pets ready and waiting for someone to bring them home.
Millions of pets are donated to animal rescue organizations each year across the country, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only half of all shelter animals – about 3.2 million – are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the East Haven area – are still waiting for their homes forever.
If you need help with your search, Patch and Petfinder are here for you. This week we have created the list of animals available for adoption near you. If you are a dog lover, meet Oreo, a Labrador Retriever for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are also several large cats available.
