Lake Forest Pets Now Up For Adoption: Andy, Jalan & More

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good…

Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Lake Forest community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, shelters in and around Lake Forest have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout California — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new friend is at The Little Red Dog, where Kandan the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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 cat person, meet Andy, 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.
