Adopting a Friend
DISCLAIMER: Approval of your adoption application is not a guarantee of availability of that particular animal. We receive multiple applications on each animal, so that we can make sure and match up the right dog with the right family. Unless you reserve/pre adopt the animal in which you are approved to adopt, we will not hold it if another adopter is approved and interested. Your approval notification means that you have been approved to adopt through our agency. Our adoptions fees are non-refundable.
DISCLAIMER: Most of our adoptable animals come from high kill shelters. Occasionally we are given specific age/breed information on the animals, but more often, we have to make an educated guess as to age/breed or mixture thereof, based on size, color and physical characteristics. Because we are not breeders, but rescuers of societies cast off animals, we can not guarantee the age/breed of the dogs we post for adoption. It is merely an educated guess.
TRANSPORTS: We DO NOT SHIP our DOGS to their forever homes. Most of our fosters are located in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Transports are done weekly to the suburbs of Chicago which is where our adopters may pick up their new babies. BEFORE you apply, make certain you have the availability to travel to the Chicago area or the foster home, to adopt your new family member.
We desperately need foster homes and volunteers to help us care for the homeless animals in our program.
*Volunteers and foster homes help us with animal care and socialization by providing positive interaction with the animals.
*Volunteers and foster homes also assist with transportation of animals to and from Vet visits.
Please help make a positive impact on the life of a homeless animal by volunteering!
