Latest Pets Up For Adoption In The Santee Area

Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Santee community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in California — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new family member is at The Barking Lot Rescue, where Livery 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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, you might like Mr Pug, a Pug 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.
