Pet Adoption In The Sacramento Area: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 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 without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new family member is at City Of Sacramento Animal Care Services, where Rocco the dog 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.

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 cat person, meet Gumball & Cinnamon K., a Tabby mix up for adoption. 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.
