If you’ve been wanting to add a fluffy ball of love and affection to your life, look no further than these Palos area shelters for a pet you can take home.
Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new fur child is at Half Way Home Animal Rescue, where Scout the dog is waiting patiently, or another local rescue agency. 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.
With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family.
