Oakland Township-Lake Orion Pets Newly Up For Adoption: Oleander, Freckles, Violet & More

Want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the Oakland Township-Lake Orion community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in Oakland Township-Lake Orion and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

In the search for your new fur child, consider starting at a local facility like Heavenly Paws Of Michigan, where Mavis the cat 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, you might like Oleander, a Catahoula Leopard Dog 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.
