Want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in Palatine and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at Fortunate Pooches And Lab Rescue, where Gore the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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, meet Gerard, a Pointer 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.
