Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve a 30 mile radius of the Chicagoland Area.This is due to our commitment to provide after care for any behavior issues that may arise. We must also have access to good vet services to keep the animal healthy as it waits for you to find it. Our shows on Saturdays play a vital role in finding a great home, so we want to keep our Team Members close to our Shows each week. Go to www.foster2homeinc.org to see where we are each week! Hope to see you soon.

Our Adoption Process:

To begin the process, please go to www.foster2homeinc.org and fill out an application. We will then look at this and call your vet and friend references. (please tell them in advance, we will be calling). If all looks like a good fit we will schedule a home visit for safety purposes. It is after this we will make a determination, if it is indeed the right match for you. Your Foster mom or dad will call you to set up an adoption day. Please understand we do not "hold" dogs. All adoptions take place at our shows on Saturdays. An adoption contract, training certificate and if needed a spay/neuter form and microchip form will be filled out by you at that time. We will answer all your questions and help you get started by giving you the coupon booklet. Each dog will get an adoption folder complete with copies of the contract, microchip information and all the medical information you will need to take to your vet. Our dogs are considered completely vetted and full disclosure of all is given at the time of adoption. Young puppies that need more puppy shots are covered by you after the adoption. Puppies will not be spayed or neutered until 5-6 months of age and also given a rabies vaccine at one of our network doctors. This is all part of our cost. We will have a paper for the vet to sign to prove the procedure is done. Please fax this back to Foster 2 Home at 847-632-0370. If we do not get this back we will call you. All dogs under the age of 2 are considered puppies. You are responsible to sign them up for a manners course. It will make the transition easier and the bond more complete. We can recommend many affordable family friendly trainers in you area. All dogs, with the exception of the puppies are adopted out "as is" on the adoption day. We are not responsible for any conditions should something come up after the adoption. An example of this is, Heartworm. We test all, if of age, for this serious disease. However, if the medicine is not given correctly, or on time each month, they may come down with this. It is expensive to treat so be vigilant when making a 'Hello" visit to your doctor soon after adoption. Ask advice on the correct way to vaccinate for this deadly disease. All of us know, having a dog can be expensive, so keep this in mind and be certain to schedule yearly visits to keep it healthy. Most dogs can cost between 800.00 to $1,000.00 when all is considered. Something to keep in mind when adopting. Our costs to vet the dogs are less, thanks to the dedication of our Veterinary Network Doctors. It is because of there love of helping rescued dogs we can offer a fully vetted dog to you at these prices:
Senior considered 7 years and older are now available for our Senior for Seniors Program. Be sure to ask about our wonderful, healthy older babies. They will have a dental done as an extra precaution.

Adult Dogs considered over 2 years to 6 years - 295.00.

Puppies 8 weeks of age to 2 years - 320.00. Due to the extra vaccines needed.

Please keep in mind we all do this for the love of the homeless dogs, so your patience is greatly appreciated.

You may call us at 224-400-9948. We will return all phone messages at this number. You may also fill out a contact form on our web page. Thank you for caring about the voiceless babies we work so hard to help.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
