Claire is a 3-year-old female domestic shorthair who is sweet and loving. She would be a wonderful addition to any loving home. Contact the Will County Humane Society at willcountyhumane.com and follow the instructions for the adoption process.

Harris is a 1-year-old tabby that was adopted from NAWS but recently abandoned. He is curious, talkative and sweet. He will give affectionate head bumps on rub on your hand to show his appreciation for some pets and attention. He loves toys, especially stuffed mice. To meet Harris, email Delonda at delonda@nawsus.org or call NAWS at 708-478-5102 to meet him.

Thelma is a 2-year-old female Boston terrier mix that is outgoing, sweet and friendly. She was adopted as a puppy but is now in need of a new home because her owner passed away. She is an adorable girl that deserves a second chance. To meet Thelma, email Stacy at stacy@nawsus.org to setup an appointment with an adoption counselor to meet her.

Sweet 1-year-old Jailyn originally came to the shelter with a litter of kittens four months ago. Her kittens all found homes right away but for some reason she continues to be overlooked. Jailyn loves to run around and play but she also loves to be pet. She prefers to be the only pet at home. To meet Jailyn, call Joliet Township Animal Control at 815-725-0333.

Lena is an 8-month-old shepherd mix. She loves being around other dogs and they really help her come out of her shell quicker. She can be shy with new people at first, but it doesn’t take her long once the dog toys come out. To meet Lena, call Joliet Township Animal Control at 815-725-0333.
