Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the Homer Glen-Lockport community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. During the coronavirus pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Illinois — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new friend is at Wish Upon A Rescue, where Eminem the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Louie, a Chihuahua 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.
