Aurora Adoptable Pets Of The Week: Luna, Becker, Dora & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and do something good for the Aurora community at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in and around Aurora are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Illinois, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home — and many of them are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new family member is at Aurora Il Animal Care And Control, where Dora 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.

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, you might like Luna, a Mixed Breed 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.
