Looking to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! Many shelter animals are still looking for their forever home and shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.
There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home throughout Illinois — and many are located in your area. If you’re on a search for your new four-legged companion, consider starting at a local rescue agency like Alive Rescue, where Jewel the dog 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
