Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters in the Oak Lawn area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Illinois — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new friend is at Kitties For Keeps Rescue, where Zecora the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 cat person, meet ALEXANDER, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
