If you’ve been wanting to add a fluffy ball of love and affection to your family, start with these animal shelters in the Palos area for a pet to take home.
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. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new four-legged friend is at Traveling Tails Dog Rescue, where Sylvie the dog 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
