Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across California — and many are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at Amazing Strays Rescue, where Basil 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Hazel, a Shar-Pei 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.
