Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new companion is at A Dot Do Dot Pt Pet Shelter, where Brittany the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

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. If you’re a dog person, you might like Snickerdoodle, a Dachshund 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.
