Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home in Illinois — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a new friend, consider beginning at a local 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 create 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 Delia, a Coonhound 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.
