Chicago Pets For Adoption (4/12) (PHOTOS)

It's been a few weeks, but we're back at it.

Far too many Chicagoland pets are currently stuck in animal shelters, awaiting their forever homes, and we'd like to help do something about it.

Scroll down to check out photos of local adoptable rescue cats, dogs and rabbits from a number of Chicago-area shelters with whom HuffPost has partnered with the hopes of raising awareness of the joy of helping rescue pets. To our knowledge, they've been spayed or neutered and are up to date with their vaccinations. Contact the shelter named to learn more about each animal or for help planning a visit.

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.
