Want to add to your family and do something good for the Aurora community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters 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 begin your search for an adorable new family member is at Fur Angels Animal Sanctuary, where Kobe the guinea pig is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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.

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. 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.
