Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Murrieta have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

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 not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local shelter like Lucky Bunny Rabbit Rescue, where Lacey the rabbit is waiting patiently. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet ALABAMA, 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.
