Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Cupertino community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across California — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local facility like Furrever Cat And Kitten Rescue, where Shannon the cat 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 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 Owlie and Shadow, a Tortoiseshell 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.
