Do you want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Orange County area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new companion is at Oc Animal Care, where Corbin 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 dog person, you might like SEAL, 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.
