FAQ about adopting
Thank you for your interest in one of our animals. Below you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
What animals do you have for adoption? Hover over the cats or dogs link and click on available dogs or available cats. You can then click on an animal’s name for a bio and more detail on that animal. We do our best to keep bios on each of our animals.
What are your adoption policies and minimum donation fee? This can also be on found the web site under the cats or dogs link. Please note that we only adopt in the greater Chicago land area. For dogs, home-checks are required if your application is approved. For cats, kittens must be adopted out in pairs.
Where do your animal live? We do not have a shelter and make every effort to place our animals in temporary homes. This way, we can learn more about the animal's habits and needs which helps us make the best match possible with the adoptive home.
Where can I go to see your animals? Our adoption shows are every Saturday from 11-3 at PetSmart stores in our area. Hover over the cats or dog link, then select the adoption shows. We make every effort to have each one of our available animals at a show each weekend. Each animal's location can be found on the web site in the animals bio page and is updated the Friday evening prior to the Saturday show.
Inquiries? We are an all-volunteer organization and do our best to reply to all inquiries personally. However at times multiple inquires on specific animals make this impossible. If you have further questions after having read the bio and the policies on our web site, please email or call the party indicated on the animal's bio.
How do I find the right pet? It is also helpful if you can provide us with information about your situation such as other pets, children, and number of hours the pet would be left alone, etc… to help us match you with the perfect pet.
