San Rafael Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Sabrina, Delaney, Cupcake & More

11 min read

Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in and around San Rafael are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

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 start your search for your new friend is at Marin Humane Society, where Cupcake 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Sabrina, 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.
