Pleasant Hill Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Rain, Cinnamon, Bonnie & More

12 min read

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Pleasant Hill community at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

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 within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Ozzies Pound Puppies, where Petey 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Rain, a Siberian Husky 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.
