·13 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Perhaps it's time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a lovable new family member is at Chicagoland Animal Rescue Nfp, where Omlet the cat is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 permanent homes.

If you 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 cat person, meet Dot, 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.
