Pet Adoption In The Lamorinda Area: See New Local Pets

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the…

Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located near you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Underdog Animal Rescue, where Rue the dog 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Genesis, a Chihuahua 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.
