Chicago Heights Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Boots, Dora, Kitkat & More

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Chicago Heights area are still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for a new companion is at South Suburban Humane Society, where Kitkat 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 in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. 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 Boots, 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.
