Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities have dogs, cats and other pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home across Illinois — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Fur Angels Animal Sanctuary, where Cleo the hamster is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

If you 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 person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
