Looking to add to your family and give back to the Murrieta community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets 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 throughout California — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Lucky Bunny Rabbit Rescue, where Lucky the rabbit 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 in permanent 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 cat person, meet TOM, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
