The new year is here, and many Chicago-area pets marked the occasion of 2013's arrival in a shelter, still waiting for their forever homes.

Scroll down to check out photos of local rescue cats and dogs that are currently available to be adopted at a number of area shelters. With a cold winter still ahead, these pets are lucky to be off the streets -- but they need and deserve a family to call their own. To our knowledge, they've all been spayed or neutered and are up to date with their vaccinations.
