If you’ve been hoping to add a fuzzy ball of love and affection to your life, look no further than these shelters in and around Lake Elsinore-Wildomar for a pet up for adoption.
Millions of pets and other companion animals are surrendered or taken in each year by adoption facilities nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only half of all shelter animals — about 3.2 million — are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Lake Elsinore-Wildomar area — are still waiting for their forever homes.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has created this week’s list of pets available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family. If you’re a cat person, meet Brownie, a Domestic Medium Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
