Adopt A Pet From Manhattan Beach Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Manhattan Beach community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like King Of Hearts Foundation, where Archie 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, meet Vinny, a Chihuahua mix up for adoption. 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.
