All of our dogs are located in foster homes and our cats are located at Lake Zurich's Petco or at Best Friends Pet Care in Prairie View.

All adopters must fill out an application before an appointment to meet a dog will be scheduled or a go home meeting with a cat can be scheduled.

Cats can be viewed at Best Friends Pet Care or Lake Zurich Petco during business hours 7 days a week(see http://yahpetrescue.com/adopt-a-dog-or-cat/cats for more info).

All dogs are located in private foster homes and are seen by appointment only.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
