Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Los Angeles community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Los Angeles and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Our Family Paws Rescue, where Yuri the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

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 Sherlock, a Corgi 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.
