Benicia Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Blossom And Bubbles, Leon And Dip, Joshua & More

11 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Benicia community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Benicia are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across California — and many of them are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like Gabbys Animal Rescue Inc, where Benny the cat 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 cat person, meet Blossom and Bubbles, a Dilute Tortoiseshell mix up for adoption. 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.
