If you’ve been wanting to add a fluffy ball of four-legged love and affection to your family, start with these Alsip-Crestwood area shelters for a pet to take home.
Millions of pets are given to animal rescue organizations each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only half of all shelter animals — about 3.2 million — are adopted each year, ASPCA data shows. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Alsip-Crestwood area — are still waiting for their forever 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.
