Fountain Valley Pets Who Need A Home: Dino, Theodore, Beauty & Tinsel & More

9 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Fountain Valley community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Fountain Valley are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout California — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new fur child is at Bunny Bunch Rabbit Rescue, where Beauty & Tinsel the guinea pig 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.

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