Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across California — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new family member is at Amazing Strays Rescue, where Leah 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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, you might like Sam, a Labrador Retriever 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.
