I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Brownie's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Brownie's Story...
Everyone around here says I was perfectly named- because I'm super sweet and have the most lovely big brown eyes! I like to climb up and put my paws on your chest so I can lick & nibble the tip of your nose. Sometimes I nibble too hard, though, so my trainer says I need to go to puppy class to learn to be gentle even when I'm excited! My foster mom says I love to run & play, I'm still working on potty training, and I'm a typical puppy who likes to chew on everything! Lots of nylabones and toys for me , please :)

If you have questions about our dogs or adoption process, the quickest way to get more information is to call our front desk at 630-355-3399. You can also visit us online at www.adoptpetshelter.org and look under the Adoptions menu or email our adoption counselors at dogquestions@adoptpetshelter.org

The first step of the process is to stop by our shelter anytime during adoption hours to meet the animals and talk with an adoption counselor to find the pet who’s the right fit for your family. After selecting an animal to adopt, the adoption counselor can place the pet “on hold” for you for a couple of days while we process your application; we’ll talk to your references, have our medical team review the pet’s file to make sure they’ve had all their vaccines & have been microchipped, and tie up any loose ends to get the animal ready to go home. After you’ve been approved, we’ll call to schedule a time for you to pick up your new pet!

(If you currently have a dog, we would ask that you please leave them at home during your initial visit. Once you've picked out an animal and placed a hold, the adoption counselor will help you schedule an appointment to come back with your dog for an introduction at a later time).

Our shelter is located at 420 Industrial Drive in Naperville, IL, and our adoption hours are:

Monday & Wednesday: Closed
Tuesday 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Thursday 12:00 – 8:00 pm
Friday 12:00 – 5:00 pm
Saturday and Sunday 12:00 – 3:00 pm

Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brownie, a Naperville Chihuahua/Dachshund puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Dachshund for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund puppy from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Chihuahua/Dachshund breeders who help with Chihuahua/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
