Want to add to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Oak Park-River Forest 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 and sizes without a home in Illinois — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new companion is at Animal Care League, where Reign 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 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 Elvis, a Pit Bull Terrier 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.
