Want to add to your family? Look no further than these Northbrook animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Pet adoption agencies in the Northbrook area have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting for someone to take them home.
Over 6 million pets are given to animal shelters each year nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all shelter animals are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. This means millions of animals — some right here in the Northbrook area — are still waiting for their forever homes.
Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Maple, a Domestic Medium Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too.
Click on any listing to learn more about a pet or to start the adoption process.
