Want to add to your family and give back to the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Lake Forest-Lake Bluff have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new friend is at Animal Education And Rescue, where Jelly the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another local 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 appropriate homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Abby, a Dachshund mix up for adoption. 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.
