CISCO's Story...
Cisco is a Aussie mix pup. He is about 3-4 months old and weighs around 9 lbs. Cisco is such a sweet dog. He is a friend to every foster dog and always is so well behaved and LOVES to give kisses. Has the softest hair that is like a package of white cotton balls. His coat coloring is just stunning. Cisco is working on his potty skills in his foster home and he is ready for his real HOME.

Ciscos' adoption donation is $495 which helps to cover the neutering, shots, bordetella (kennel cough), vet examination, certificate of health and transportation. Cisco lives with a foster family in Tennessee and will travel to his new family once he has been adopted. The next transport date to the Chicago / Milwaukee / Minneapolis area is Wednesday, May 6th.

Our primary source of funding comes from this adoption donation. This donation allows us to rescue other dogs in danger of being put to sleep, injured or sick dogs and dogs that have never known the comfort of a home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CISCO, a Chicago Australian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Australian Shepherd puppy 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 Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
