Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout California — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at Solano County Friends Of Animals, where Cleopatra the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Gemma, a Tuxedo 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.
