Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Del Ray community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Del Ray and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for a new fur child, consider starting at a local adoption center like Lus Labs, where River 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Dusk 2020, 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.
