Pet Adoption In The Chicago Area: New Pets Added This Week

Do you want to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the Chicago community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in the Chicago area are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider looking around at a local animal shelter like Friends Of Chicago Animal Care And Control, where Agnes the cat 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.

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 Creed, a German Shepherd Dog 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.
