Chicago Area Cats, Dogs & Other Pets Up For Adoption (3/9) (PHOTOS)

While we don't like to play favorites here at HuffPost Chicago -- particularly when it comes to adoptable pets -- we have to say that this week's roundup of area homeless pets might just be one of our cutest groups yet.

Whether it's Cary Grant the rabbit, Barney the big-eyed tabby or Chip and Dale the rescue puppies, this week's batch offers something for many sorts of animal lovers.

To our knowledge, all animals included in the roundup are spayed or neutered, microchipped and up-to-date with their tests and 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 remain homeless -- those whom we've heard have already been adopted are noted with a "Spoken For!" tag.
