Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Watsonville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! 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.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across California — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new friend is at Santa Clara County Animal Care And Control, where Bolt the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 DEMI, 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.
