Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Pinole-Hercules community at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Pinole-Hercules area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Jellys Place, where Violet 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 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 Samantha, an American Shorthair mix up for adoption. 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.
