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

This week's batch is especially cute. If you notice something missing while you're out grilling this weekend with your buddies' pups, or wouldn't mind a furry wake-up call while you're sleeping in on Monday, it might be worth adding a stop to your local shelter to your Labor Day shopping agenda.

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.
