Want to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Wheaton are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider checking out a local facility like St Sophias Forgotten Felines, where Marvin the cat 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 appropriate homes.

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 cat person, meet Ramona, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
