Want to add to your family and do something good for the Oak Park-River Forest community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Illinois — and many are located near you. In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider beginning at a local shelter like Animal Care League, where Eddie 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Emma Grace, a Mountain Cur 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.
