Looking to add an additional special, and furry, member to your family? Or for a way to support a local adoption site? A pet adoption event is a great way to find that perfect pet who can make you feel like your life is complete, and pet adoption events are also an excellent way to help out animal adoption groups as they depend heavily or solely on the generosity of others. There are many excellent pet adoption agencies in the Chicago area; here are five of the best upcoming pet adoption events in the vity. The adoption events may be highlighting animals available for adoption or raising money for their cause or a combination of both.
