Adopting A Friend

Adoption Process

  • APPLY — Fill out an adoption application on our website, wright-wayrescue.org. This application is good for 90 days.
  • RESERVE — Do you see an animal you'd like to adopt? Wright-Way Rescue is unique to many shelters because of it’s ability to hold pets for pre-approved adopters who make arrangements to meet them. Approved applicants who are seriously interested in a particular animal may place them on reserve to meet once they become ready for adoption.There is NO FEE to place a reservation. We do however ask that the potential adopter is serious about meeting this particular pet. If we hold a pet and the person does not show up, that pet may have missed it’s chance to find a family during the time it was on reserve.  If you see a specific pet on our website you believe to be seriously interested in meeting and adopting, please call our office to set an appointment (847) 728-5234, Option 2. Please remember that we take only one reservation per pet. Please only set up an appointment if you know you can attend your time, are seriously interested in the pet you are asking us to hold, and please ensure you are ready to add a pet to your home.
  • ATTEND AN ADOPTION EVENT — Wright-Way Rescue holds Adoption Events every weekend. If you would like to see all the animals up for adoption and don't feel you are ready to make a reservation, please attend one of these events. You can stay up to date on adoption events at www.wright-wayrescue.org

Who We Are

Wright-Way Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets euthanized in the Midwest each year through an adoption program, community education, promotion of spaying and neutering, and a veterinary medicine program. We continue to save pets from rural animal control facilities where they are at a high risk of euthanasia, and instead offer them a second chance at a loving home in the Chicagoland area. We place more dogs in adoptive homes than any other no-kill rescue in the State of Illinois on just 10% of the budget.
