Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Shorewood community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in Shorewood and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Illinois — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for your new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Will County Humane Society, where Daisy 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 round up 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.
