Do you want to add a new member to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Elgin area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local adoption center like Hoof Woof Meow Animal Rescue, where Talasi 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.

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 dog person, meet Roscoe, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
