Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter, where A280239 the finch 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet JUNE CARTER CASH*, a Poodle 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.
