Plainfield Pets Who Need A Home: Jaxon~ New Arrival, Boe, Comet & More

12 min read

Looking to add a new member to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and animal shelters still working to fulfill adoptions.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home throughout Illinois — and many are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for your new fur child is at Starfish Animal Rescue, where Comet the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

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 Jaxon~ new arrival, 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.
