Looking to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Evanston community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in and around Evanston are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for your new family member is at Evanston Animal Shelter, where Ollie 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.

If you 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. If you’re a cat person, meet Austin and Georgia, 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.
