Imperial Beach Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Alala, Flavio, Zester & More

8 min read

Looking to add to your family and give back to the Imperial Beach community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across California — and many are located in your area. In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local shelter like Wee Companions Small Animal Adoption Inc, where Zester the guinea pig 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 in permanent homes.

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.
