Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Los Angeles community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new family member is at The Mutt Scouts, where Pony 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 create 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 Emma, a Terrier 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.
