Do you want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals 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 throughout California — and many are located in your area. In the search for a new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like Peninsula Humane Society And Spca, where Empanada the rabbit 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 appropriate homes.

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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
