Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Los Altos community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Los Altos area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new fur child is at Doggie Protective Services, where Garfield the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Courage, a German Shepherd Dog mix up for adoption. 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.
