Looking to add to your family and give back to the Bolingbrook community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Bolingbrook area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local animal shelter like Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue, where Gwen the dog 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 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 Froot Loops, 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.
