Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. During the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Alameda and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Friends Of The Alameda Animal Shelter, where Ray Ray 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.

If you 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 Teddy, a Domestic Short 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.
