Royal Oak Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Riley, Piggy, Stanley & More

12 min read

Do you want to add to your family and do something good for the Royal Oak community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Royal Oak and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a lovable new friend, consider checking out a local animal shelter like The Ferndale Cat Shelter, where Smokey 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.

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, meet Riley, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
