Milpitas Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Marcie, Happy Gilmore, Potter & More

12 min read

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in the Milpitas area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

In the search for a lovable new companion, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Humane Society Silicon Valley, where Calvin the dog 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 cat person, meet Marcie, a Domestic Short Hair 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.
