Alameda Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Tuffy, Cassidy, Joey & More

Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Alameda have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a new companion is at Island Cat Resources And Adoption, where Joey the cat 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 create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Tuffy, a Siamese 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.
