Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Tinley Park community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Tinley Park and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Illinois — and many of them are located near you. In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Naws Humane Society, where Smores 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 Gus, a Boxer 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.
