Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in the Murrieta area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new fur child is at Domino Effect Animal Rescue, where Oreo And Cody the dog 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 in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 FIRENZE, a Bombay up for adoption. Or 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.
