Taffie's Story...
Taffie is a sweet and well-trained eight-year-old fawn shepherd-mix waiting for the perfect home at the Save-A-Pet adoption center in Grayslake, Illinois. When her elderly human passed away, poor Taffie came to the shelter grossly overweight, with kidney stones, an ear and skin infection, a urinary tract infection, major arthritis in her knees, and two dislocated hips that required surgery. Taffie has been on a diet plan, lost some weight, had her hip surgeries and is recovering from all her ailments beautifully. During this whole ordeal, Taffie's tail has never stopped wagging. At the shelter, she has a huge comfy doggie bed at the shelter, and she always rolls over for a belly rub. She loves people, and appears to get along with other gentle dogs and cats. Taffie is looking for a home where someone will keep her on a healthy diet, and give her the daily exercise she needs to keep her joints in shape. She is spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. To meet and possibly adopt her, please visit the Save-A-Pet adoption center in Grayslake, Illinois at 31664 North Fairfield Road. They're open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-5:00 pm; Thursdays from 1-8:00 pm; and Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 6:00. To expedite the adoption, you can fill out an adoption application on-line at http://www.save-a-pet-il.org. Her adoption fee of $125 benefits the many rescued dogs and cats of Save-A-Pet. If you have more questions about Taffie, please contact volunteer Dominique at 847-726-1257 or e-mail taffie@save-a-pet-il.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Taffie, a Chicago Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
