Plenty of adorable animals are up for adoption in the San Mateo area.

(Jellys Place)

Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the San Mateo community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in and around San Mateo have dogs, cats, and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats, and other animals of all ages, sizes, and breeds without a home in California — and many of them are located in your area. Some are picked immediately by welcoming families, while others wait for years to be adopted. In the search for your new fur child, consider looking around at a local shelter like The Rabbit Haven, where Margie the rabbit 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Garnet, a Chihuahua mix up for adoption. 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.
