Looking to add to your family and have a positive impact on the Downers Grove community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters in the Downers Grove area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home in Illinois — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for an adorable new fur child is at Chi Town Pitties Inc, where Canolli the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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 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 LULU, a Shih Tzu 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.
