Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local adoption center like City Of Sacramento Animal Care Services, where Kota the dog 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 appropriate 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. If you’re a dog person, meet RED, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
