See The Latest Adoptable Pets At Chicago Area Shelters

Looking to add to your family and give back to the Chicago community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, facilities in Chicago and environs have dogs, cats and other kinds of pets ready and waiting to be adopted.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Illinois — and many are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new companion is at Alive Rescue, where Guinness the dog is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Flannery, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
