Los Alamitos-Seal Beach Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Bayou, Somersault & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world…

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Los Alamitos-Seal Beach area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across California, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider checking out a local shelter like Catpaws, where Cartwheel the cat 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 appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Bayou, 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.
