Do you want to add to your family and make a positive impact on the Palos community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! During the coronavirus pandemic, many facilities in Palos and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a lovable new companion is at Kitties For Keeps Rescue, where Harmony the cat is waiting patiently, or another local animal 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.

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 Tink, a Spaniel 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.
