Adopt shelters in the Palos Verdes region: discover new dogs and cats
Do you want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a shelter or local organization! Many pets are still in search of their forever home, and animal shelters are still working to place pets with families.
More than 6 million pets are turned over to adoption agencies each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Of these, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals looking for a permanent home, including pigs, birds and even horses.
However, only about half of all these animals are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the Palos Verdes region – are still waiting for their homes forever.
If you need help with your search, Patch and Petfinder are here for you. We create a weekly list of all animals recently offered for adoption in your area. If you love dogs, meet Molly, a Border Collie mixed up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are also several large cats available.
