Libertyville Pets Who Need A Home: Teddy, Charly, Flower & More

Looking to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Libertyville community at the same time? Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet! Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many are located not too far from you. In the search for a lovable new companion, consider beginning at a local adoption center like Animal Education And Rescue, where Hazel the guinea pig 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.

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. Whether you’re a dog or cat person, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
