Adopt A Pet From Orland Park Area Shelters: See New Local Dogs, Cats & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world…

Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Orland Park are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a new companion is at Naws Humane Society, where Zeta the cat is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 permanent homes.

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, meet Tink, a Spaniel 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.
