Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Alameda community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Alameda area have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local shelter like Friends Of The Alameda Animal Shelter, where Birdie the dog 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 appropriate 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 cat person, meet Savannah Georgia Peach, a Domestic Medium 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.
