Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Evanston community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

In the search for a lovable new family pet, consider checking out a local shelter like Community Animal Rescue Effort C Dot Ar Dot E, where Luna the cat 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Macie and Gracie, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or 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.
