Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Oak Creek area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Wisconsin — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local facility like Woof Gang Rescue, where Dickens the dog 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Garrison, a Shepherd 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.
