Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Western Springs community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new friend is at Hinsdale Humane Society, where Alice the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Sonya, 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.
