Long Beach Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Ava, Ella & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on…

Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Foreverhome Pet Rescue South, where Charlie the cat 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Ava, a Turkish Van 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.
