Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new family member is at The Forgotten Dog Foundation, where Luna the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

If you 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, you might like Katan, a Husky 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.
