Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Pacific Palisades community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in the Pacific Palisades area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at Caat Friends, where Fallon the cat 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 in appropriate 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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Boots, a Beagle up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
