Want to add a new member to your family and give back to the Winnetka-Glencoe community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Winnetka-Glencoe and environs have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Illinois — and many of them are located within driving distance. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local shelter like Community Animal Rescue Effort C Dot Ar Dot E, where Frannie 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 round up 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 Milo, 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.
