Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Pleasanton community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities 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 in California — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Pleasanton Valley Humane Society, where Tide the dog 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.

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 HEATHCLIFF, 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.
