Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Capitola-Soquel community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

In the search for your new companion, consider beginning at a local facility like Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter, where Dynamite the parakeet 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 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 dog person, you might like Suzie & Blue, a Miniature Pinscher 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.
