See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Newtown Area Shelters

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Newtown and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at Royces Rescue, where Ollie the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Bishop Bish Fish, a Dogue de Bordeaux 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.
