Looking to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across California — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new fur child is at Saving Shelter Souls, where Mocha the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

If you 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. If you’re a dog person, meet Nugget, an Australian Shepherd 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.
