Chicago Area Cats, Dogs & Other Pets Up For Adoption (5/4) (PHOTOS)

Posted: 05/04/2012 4:00 pm Updated: 05/04/2012 4:00 pm

Sure, they may not (yet) be viral Internet video sensations, but this week's crop of local adoptable pets in need of homes are certainly not short on star quality.

Below is HuffPost Chicago's twenty-sixth weekly roundup of featured cats, dogs and rabbits from a group of area shelters. To our knowledge, all animals included in the roundup are spayed or neutered, microchipped and up-to-date with their tests and vaccinations.

Scroll down to check out photos of a selection of Chicagoland pets currently up for adoption. If you can't take a pet into your home currently but want to help out the cause, many of the shelters have upcoming fundraising events, including PAWS Chicago's Angels With Tails adoption event this Sunday and C.A.R.E.'s Strut for Strays on May 13.

If this slideshow doesn't satisfy your cute animal fix, be sure to check out past features linked below the gallery either by scrolling down or clicking here. Many of the previously featured animals still remain homeless.
