Want to add to your family and give back to the Plainfield community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Plainfield and environs are still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in Illinois — and many of them are located not too far from you. In the search for a new companion, consider checking out a local animal shelter like The Boneyard Animal Rescue, where Gizmo 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.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Edward, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling 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.
