Chicago Pets For Adoption (2/8) (PHOTOS)

With Valentine's Day right around the corner and romance in the air, we couldn't think of a better opportunity to consider bringing some more love into the house.

This week, we've rounded up another group of Chicago-area pets currently up for adoption in and around the city. They are all in need of and ready for their new forever homes.

Scroll down to check out photos of local adoptable rescue cats, dogs and rabbits from a number of area shelters. 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.

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.
