Do you want to add a furry friend to your family? Look no further than these East Palo Alto animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Shelters in East Palo Alto and environs have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.
About 6.5 million pets are taken in each year by animal rescue organizations nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all animals are adopted each year, ASPCA data shows. Looking to adopt your new family member? A great place to begin your search is at Pets In Need, where Quirk the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
