Pet Adoption In The Alameda Space: New Canines, Cats Added This Week

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Alameda and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new friend is at Friends Of The Alameda Animal Shelter, where Ale the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 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 Romeo, 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.
