Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Rancho Santa Margarita area 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, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new companion, consider starting at a local shelter like Southern Counties Rescue Inc, where Beatrix the cat 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Jack, a Spaniel mix up for adoption. 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.
