What with the city's first snow out of the way, the CTA's Holiday Train preparing to depart on its first run this year and Thanksgiving right around the corner, who could blame a Chicagoan for starting to feel the spirit of the season?

Why not take that growing sense of good cheer and commit to helping out a local pet in need? Scroll down to check out photos of local rescue cats and dogs that are currently up for adoption at a number of area shelters. To our knowledge, they've all been spayed or neutered and are up to date with their vaccinations.

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 are in need of homes.
