Chicago-Area Cats, Dogs & Other Pets Up For Adoption (6/8) (PHOTOS)

Another week, another batch of adorable, adoptable local cats, dogs and rabbits up for adoption at a variety of Chicagoland shelters.

We know we say this all the time -- but this is a crop that's overflowing with charisma. And in addition to these animals, PAWS Chicago is hosting a 36-hour adopt-a-thon event that began 11 a.m. Friday and runs through 11 p.m. Sunday. Visit their adoption center at 1997 N. Clybourn Avenue to check it out.

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 remain homeless.
