Adoption Policy

Adoption Policy
We are strong believers that every animal deserves a good home, but we also believe that not every animal is right for every home.

We take the time to learn about an animal's behavior and match it with the lifestyle of potential adopters.

Adopters must fill out our adoption application, provide verifiable vet references, and agree to a screening, meet and greet, and an at-home visit.

All kittens will be adopted in pairs unless there is already an existing cat in the home.

Please note: Our adoption fees will vary.
Our paralyzed special needs pets that require special care will always come with higher adoption fees.

Our Process:

1. Please email us at for an application.
We require applications to be completed in its entirety.
Any application with questions not answered fully will not be considered complete and will not be processed.

2. Please note that we are volunteers.
We do not have any paid staff.
All applications are processed outside of our normal non-rescue jobs. An application does not guarantee approval of adoption. Our decision is based on what is the best fit for our dogs and cats. We will call your references, your vet, and make any other necessary calls needed in order to approve or deny an application.

3. Phone or email interview. We will notify you if your application is approved.

4. Meet and greet - we will only schedule meet and greets for those who have passed steps 1-3.
We ask that you come to our facility for the initial meet and greet. If you have children, room mates, or other dogs, they must be present.

5. Home visit/ Pet meet and greet - we want to make sure that all humans and pets are a good match! One of the best ways to gauge this in your home environment.

Due to the requirement of home visits, we are currently adopting only within the city of Chicago and nearby suburbs at our discretion.

We are not currently adopting out of state.
We are not interested in traveling 20+ miles.
We have chosen a small radius near our facility in order to provide support to our adopted animals and their new families.

Caring Animal Rescue Inc does not have any paid staff.
All monies, adoption fees, donations etc go directly to paying for the care of the animals in our rescue.

If all goes well at the home visit, the pet can stay and we will move onto step 6.

6. Adoption Finalization - sign the adoption contract and pay adoption fee - we accept cash or check.
Your adoption fee covers age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm test, as well as spay/neuter and microchipping.

We reserve the right to decline any application.
