Dog Adoption


Check out the doggy in the window!

 These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:


His name is UNO – possibly because he simply wants “to be one with you”.  He is happiest when getting hugged by … anyone!   Who cares about treats, toys, games, fancy accouterments:  ‘just hold me & love me’  🙂 

Uno is a LOVEBUG in the greatest sense of the word.  He arrived very unsure of the situation: an “older gentleman”, Uno didn’t understand why things had changed so much – so suddenly. But he soon found arms to hold him – and he’s never let go.  He just loves to be held.  And  at just 19 lbs., his size is just right for this.  He’s easy to pick up, carry, snug on your lap – and he loves nothing better than this.  He is a LOVE. 

He’s easy to walk, doesn’t pull or walk too fast.  He eats well, drinks lots, likes treats, is great with other dogs – big & small – good with cats, kids, men, women.   He’ll sleep through the night in a crate, or better yet – at your side (of course,  prefers the latter). His ‘beagle-bark’ will let you know it’s time to get up! 😊   He’s crate trained, but he’d rather be at your side or in your arms. He likes to sniff & putter ’round the yard a bit, have a little wrestle with his foster buddies, and he’s back for a snug.  Would really hate to be alone for long periods of time:  he’s ‘a people-beagle’.

If you have time to fill with a wagging tail, a loving heart, & a cuddle-bug extraordinaire, this snuggler is for you.  Uno was an owner surrender from a Missouri rural community.  Uno ran off and got picked up by Animal control and the owner didn’t want to pay the ticket.  So just like that, Uno found himself on death row.  A volunteer alerted Adopt-A-Pet of this little gem who didn’t deserve to be where he was, and we pulled him out of the pound and brought him up here for YOU to adopt him and let him live out his golden years on YOUR lap!  He’s making up for lost time, acts like he’s never snugged before.  He went looking for love – and found Adopt-A-Pet.  Now he’s found out how wonderful it feels – and just can’t get enough. 

We believe Uno is about 10-12 years old.  He is healthy, active and spirited with tons of love to give.  He will make a wonderful companion for anyone lucky enough to adopt him.  His adoption fee of $150 includes:  comprehensive vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, routine deworming, microchip, and neuter.


Addy is an approximately 3 month old mixed breed that looks like a lab-hound mix, currently weighing in at about 11 pounds.  She is black with brindle markings, sporting a white vest and socks.  She is a sweet girl that likes to give kisses.   Addy is new to Adopt-A-Pet, so stay tuned for more info as we get to know her better.

Because of Addy’s young age, she must go to a household with a stay-at-home person who will commit to her continued training, socialization and exercise needs.

You can meet Addy at her current foster home, Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd., 7 days a week during normal store hours.  (, 847-251-6750).  Although she is so sweet you will want to take her home on the spot, you will need to submit an application first.  

Addy’s estimated date of birth is 4/15/17, and her adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and spay.

We have everything you need to get started, and, when you adopt any dog (whether they’re fostered here or elsewhere), you’ll get a coupon book filled with tons of savings.

Check out all of the available dogs for adoption by heading over to Adopt-A-Pet’s site.

Please understand that though you may want to take these adorable animals home with you when you see them, you will first have to go through the application process through Adopt-A-Pet. Applications can be found here; fill it out and send it to Adopt-A-Pet. One of their adoption counselors will contact you. 

We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these dogs. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular dog on their main site here.
