Available Animals for Adoption

Are you ready to add a new member to your family? Our Adoption team is here to help you find a pet to fit your family. We recommend researching what type of pet best fits your household activity level, time commitment, space, other pets, and all the other factors that go into selecting a new pet.

 

Our space for animal interactions is limited, so we offer adoption interactions by appointment only with approved applicants either in person at the shelter or virtually via Zoom.

 

Adoption Programs

Open adoption hours are suspended immediately, and we will be facilitating adoptions virtually via Zoom and by appointment only.

Step 1. Scroll down or visit our Facebook page to learn more information about animals up for adoption.

Step 2. Complete an adoption application directly from the links below. 

Step 3. If you aren't sure which animal is right for you, call our office at 630-407-2800 to speak with a staff member.

Step 4. Once your application is received and approved, staff will call you to discuss the pet you wish to meet and schedule either an in-person meeting or you may start with a virtual Zoom meet and greet with that pet. During the virtual interaction, you’ll be able to see the pet on video and have all your questions answered by an adoption counselor. Please note a submitted application does not place that pet on hold for you or guarantee you will be able to meet that pet.

Step 5. Meet your potential new pet and if it is a perfect match, complete the adoption and take your new pet home! We know bringing home a new pet is a big deal, so we also give you until the close of business on the next day to think about it and then make a decision.
