Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Del Ray community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider starting at a local shelter like King Street Cats, where Clark 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 in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Henderson, 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.
