Lemon Grove Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Johnny & More

11 min read

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Lemon Grove community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Lemon Grove and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new companion is at Amazing Strays Rescue, where Johnny the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

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.
