Looking to add a new furry friend to your family?

All over Sonoma County there are animals looking for forever homes. Because of this, each month we're spotlighting a different agency dedicated to finding new families for orphaned dogs and cats.

First up is Petaluma Animal Services, this Petaluma People's Choice winner is a no-kill public shelter that takes in lost domestic animals and owner- surrendered pets in Petaluma, Calistoga, Healdsburg and Cloverdale.

The shelter takes in 1,600 animals a year and has a 98 percent live release rate, according to Director of Dog Training and Behavior, Valerie Fausone.
