Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Newark community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout California — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for your new friend, consider looking around at a local facility like Doggie Protective Services, where Wolowitz 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 permanent 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 dog person, meet AJ, a Boxer 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.
