Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in Burr Ridge and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Illinois — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for your new friend, consider checking out a 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 appropriate homes.

If you 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. If you’re a dog person, you might like TIGGER, a Jack Russell Terrier up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
