Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities in Wilmette-Kenilworth and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

In the search for a lovable new fur child, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Felines And Canines, where Smooches 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.

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 cat person, meet Mouse, 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.
