Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local adoption center like A Better Chance Rescue, where Archi 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Ivy, 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.
