Want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the Grayslake community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions.

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 not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new friend is at Wagging Hearts, where Africa the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 appropriate homes.

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 dog person, meet Nutella, a Labrador Retriever 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.
