Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new friend is at Baja Animal Sanctuary, where Mandy the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 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 dog person, you might like Kiki, a Black Mouth Cur up for adoption. Or 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.
