Come Meet our Pets:

We are a small but mighty organization and many of our dogs are long-term rescues, therefore we have a large foster community in the Chicagoland area.

If you would like more information or would like to set up a meet and greet with one of our loveable pups just email, facebook, or call us anytime.

Our Adoption Process:

An adoption application is required along with references and a home visit. Once approved the adoption fees vary by age:
$300 for under 1 year old
$250 for over 1 year old

We also have a contract and offer lifefime training (in Illinois) for all of our adopted dogs.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
