Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in and around Murrieta have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at Hope Ranch Animal Sanctuary, where Hanks the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet VEGA, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
