Rosemont Adoptable Pets: Meet Smithers, Corona, Lilly & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Rosemont community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in the Rosemont area 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, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for your new companion, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Sacramento County Animal Care And Regulation, where Leia 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 permanent 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, you might like SMITHERS, a Pit Bull Terrier up for adoption. Or 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.
