Do you want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many shelters in the Chicago Heights area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new friend is at South Suburban Humane Society, where Eugene 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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 cat person, meet Sunshine, 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.
