Looking to add a furry friend to your family and make a positive impact on the Palatine community at the same time? Perhaps it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a new friend, consider checking out a local facility like Forever Fortunate Felines, where Maisie 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.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Madison, 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.
