Do you want to add a furry friend to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals 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 — many of whom are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new fur child is at Fortunate Pooches And Lab Rescue, where Bailey 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 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 Marvin, a Labrador 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.
