Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Dublin community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for your new companion, consider looking around at a local shelter like Pleasanton Valley Humane Society, where Bigelow 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.

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 dog person, you might like Calliope, a Pit Bull Terrier up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
