Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for your new family pet, consider beginning at a 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 permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
