Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Oak Forest community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider starting at a local adoption center like Half Way Home Animal Rescue, where Jenna 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.

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 Teddy R. Bear, a Yorkshire Terrier 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.
