Latest Pets To Go Up For Adoption In The South Side Area

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the South Side community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, shelters in the South Side area have dogs, cats and other animals ready and waiting for someone to take them home.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — many of whom are located not too far from you. In the search for a new family pet, consider looking around at a local shelter like Cat Care And Rescue Inc, where Bugs Bunny 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 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, meet Wonton, a Labrador Retriever mix up for adoption. 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.
