Looking to add a new member 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! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Deerfield area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Illinois — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for an adorable new friend is at Orphans Of The Storm Animal Shelter, where Blake the dog 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Cali, a Boxer mix up for adoption. 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.
