Want to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in the Manhattan area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new companion is at Paws Up 4 Rescue, where Elf the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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 in permanent homes.

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 Newley, a Beagle 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.
