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 kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home across Illinois — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for a lovable new companion is at Animal Education And Rescue, where Pickle 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
