Frankfort Pets Who Need A Home: Meet Boone, Zem, Patches & 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 dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter! Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start the search for an adorable new friend is at P Dot Aw Dot S Peoples Animal Welfare Society, where Patches the cat 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 in appropriate homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, 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 Boone, a Hound 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.
