Walnut Creek Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Leo, Trilani, Yahtzee & More

12 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in California — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at Contra Costa Humane Society, where Yahtzee the cat 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.

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