Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Highland Park community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Orphans Of The Storm Animal Shelter, where Megaera 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.

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 dog person, you might like Richard, a Beagle up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
