Pinole-Hercules Pets Waiting To Be Adopted: Sabrina, Dana, Dante & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for your new companion is at The Cat Garden Rescue, where Dante the cat 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.
