Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Illinois — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a new family pet, consider starting at a local facility like Paws Up 4 Rescue, where Leeta the dog 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.

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, you might like Lakey, a Shepherd up for adoption. Or 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.
