Want to add to your family and do something good for the Bolingbrook community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new friend is at The Rescue Vets, where Starburst the dog is waiting patiently, or another local adoption center. 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 round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Sage, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
