Adoption Policy

My adoption fee is $575. I am about 8 weeks old. I am so sweet, active and affectionate! *

If you would like to adopt me, please email or visit

Currently we are having occasional problems with our online application. If you do not receive a response after submitting your application within 1 business day, please email us at for a fillable pdf adoption application. It is advised that you also add the above email address as a contact, or our response to your application may go to your junk email folder. Please check your junk email folder periodically as we WILL send you a response!

We do not have a shelter! Our rescued pets are generally located in foster homes located in Lake, Cook, Kane or Mchenry county (not always in the town listed). Adoptions are done on a first come, first served basis and will be processed in order of receipt. Please note, some dogs go quickly! So dont wait! :)

Adoptions include, based on health and age requirements, spay/neuter at our participating vet, medical care for known conditions, heart-worm checked (adult dogs), dewormer, vaccinated, have monthly flea/tick prevention and/or heartworm prevention. And will be micro-chipped!

We process applications during business hours M-F 9am-6pm and on Saturdays 9am-2pm. An adoption coordinator may contact you via cell phone outside of these hours. Please expect up to 24 hours for a response (but sometimes we can do it REALLY quick!). An adoption coordinator WILL contact you by email once your application is processed. So again, dont wait too long!

*Note, any information provided in a any pet listing is approximate, and may be subjective based on their foster home’s experience and dynamics.

M-F 9-6
SAT 9-2
