Do you want to add to your family and give back to the Downers Grove community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Illinois — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at A Caring Place All Breed Dog Rescue, where Lulu 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
