Want to add to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, facilities in and around Palos have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new family member is at Half Way Home Animal Rescue, where Diamond 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 permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We put together 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 Stanley, a Golden Retriever 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.
