Want to add to your family and give back to the Pleasanton community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in and around Pleasanton have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Tri Valley Animal Rescue, where Lila the cat 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 cat person, meet THOR, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
