Adopt A Pet From Pleasant Hill Area Shelters: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in California — many of whom are located near you. In the search for a new family pet, consider checking out a local 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
