Adopt Fountain Valley Area Shelters: Discover New Pets
Want to add a ball of four-legged love and affection to your family and give back to the Fountain Valley community at the same time? Maybe it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Many pets are still looking for their forever home, and shelters are still working to complete adoptions.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more than 6 million pets are returned or taken away by animal rescue organizations nationwide each year.
Of these, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Shelters often look after other animals looking for a permanent home, including pigs, birds and even horses.
However, only half of all shelter animals – about 3.2 million – are adopted each year, according to data from the ASPCA. This means that millions of animals – some right here in the Fountain Valley area – are still waiting for their homes forever.
At Patch, with the help of our friends at Petfinder, we compile a weekly list of all the recently offered pets for adoption in your area. Whether you love dogs or cats are more your thing, there are several great options available.
