Do you know the various health benefits of Coconuts?
Our little gal Coconut wants you to know that she can fill your heart with love, make you laugh daily, get you out and about as your personal trainer, and of course provide you with unconditional love. All she asks in return is for you to love her as much as she will love you. Coconut may be just what the doctor ordered for you and your family!

Coconut is just about a year old and is crate trained, playful, intelligent and fun loving with both dogs and kids. She enjoys a nice stroll around the city with her 4 legged foster brother, working on mastering the basics of sit, down, off, etc. Her ultimate favorite thing is a solid cuddle sesh on the couch. She would love to go to formal training with her new family and learn even more. What’s so amazing about adopting Coconut is that she is a part Safe Humane Chicago Court Case Dogs, was evaluated by a certified dog trainer and comes with a lifetime of free training/behavior support from both us and Safe Humane.

Coconut is currently fostered in a high rise in Chicago so elevator buildings are no biggie for her.

You will go nuts with love over Coconut!

Please contact Coconut’s friends at info@savethepitbull.org to learn more about her and how to go about adopting her.

*Due to the location of our volunteers, foster homes and training resources, all potential adopters need to be within 2 hours of Chicago or Peoria, IL.

Fostered in Chicago.

Our Adoption Process...

http://dbmb-il.petfinder.com

The MINIMUM adoption fee is $300 for adult dogs and $350 for puppies. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the dogs while in foster care. All dogs are altered, current on shots, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested (and treated if necessary), and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out.

1) View the complete list of available dogs. Make sure to fully read the description of the dog you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular dog. It is easy to fall in love with a face, but that dog might not be the best match for your family.

2) Complete the adoption application. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the dog you have chosen is a good match for your home. Please email us after completing the application as sometimes technical errors may occur.

3) Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email or phone call within 24-72 hours. After a brief phone interview, if everything went well, we will schedule a time for you to meet the dog you are interested in. There is a chance we may tell you that the dog you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another dog. We will also contact your vet and personal references as well.

4) If, after meeting the dog you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. This is also the time where we do dog-dog intros, if needed.

5) If all goes well with the home visit, and meet-and-greet, you will sign an adoption agreement.

6) The MINIMUM adoption fee is $250 for adult dogs and $300 for puppies. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the dogs while in foster care. All dogs are altered, current on shots, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested (and treated if necessary), and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out.

Why do we charge an adoption fee?
We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the dogs. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the dogs. Adoption fees never cover all the costs that are put into that individual dog, so additional donations are greatly appreciated.
