See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Novato Area Shelters

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Novato area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Marin Humane Society, where Bellamy the rabbit is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. 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 appropriate 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 cat person, meet Aurora, 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.
