Adorable Adoptable Pets Of The Week At Dixon Area Shelters

Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Dixon community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters 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, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new fur child is at a 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
