Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Bolingbrook are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new fur child is at The Rescue Vets, where Violet the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Roxy, an American Staffordshire Terrier 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.
