Do you want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Winnetka-Glencoe community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider checking out a local adoption center like Heartland Animal Shelter, where Kamilla 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 in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Starla, a Labrador Retriever 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.
