JR's Story...
JR was sadly living alone in a tiny rectory after his owner (an elderly parish priest) became ill and could not longer care for him. He was on his way to the City Shelter, when Friends of Chicago Animal Care ( stepped in to help find him a loving home. He is a goofy 3-4 yr. old, 75lb, male Collie mix looking for a family to call his own. JR is neutered, micro-chipped, current on vaccines and house trained. Because of his size, he would do best in a family with no small children and a yard - or close-by park - where he can run and play. JR has lots of energy and is currently working on his manners. He is a good boy that learns fast as he is eager to please you. JR loves to go for walks and does well on a leash. He would be an asset to any family! He is a real people canine - and greets you with loads of sloppy kisses. He is inquisitive with cats, but shows no aggression toward them.

For more information or an application for JR - please email his foster mom Lori at or contact for an application. He will only be adopted in the Chicagoland area. An application and home visit are required. His adoption fee of $200 will help defer vetting costs which allows FCACC the opportunity to save additional animals from the Shelter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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