Bolingbrook Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Biscuit, Muffin, Pancake & More

12 min read

Want to add a new member to your family and do something good for the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter! Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new companion is at The Rescue Vets, where Pancake the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. 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 round up 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 Biscuit, a Hound 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.
