Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption At Concord Area Shelters

Pet News
·15 min read

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 coronavirus pandemic, shelters in Concord and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at California Pit Bull Rescue, where Nova & Blaze the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Peter, a Domestic Medium 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.
