Pleasant Hill Area Pets Who Need A Home

Want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new friend is at Calpaws K9 Rescue, where Cookie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create 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.
