Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Walnut Creek area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Northern California Sled Dog Rescue Norsled, where Odette the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, you might like Dubonnet, a Siberian 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.
