Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Chicago Heights community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new family member is at South Suburban Humane Society, where Sylvia the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in permanent 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 cat person, meet Micra, a Domestic Medium Hair mix up for adoption. 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.
