Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Temecula community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Temecula and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across California — and many are located near you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider looking around at a local facility like Workin Whiskers Inc, where Mattie 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 in appropriate homes.

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 Daisy, an Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler 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.
