Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, animal shelters have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Orphans Of The Storm Animal Shelter, where Butler 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 appropriate 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 dog person, you might like Brindle, a Terrier 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.
