Shih-Tzu Mix, Born in 2013, Neutered male 

My previous owners could not afford to bring me along when they moved, so they left me behind at Chicago Animal Care & Control. Luckily, I was scooped up by an angel from C.A.R.E. My topsy-turvy situation has made me a little shy and nervous. Even so, I do like meeting people and making new friends. I long to become your sweet forever companion. Won’t you come meet me soon?

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:
-Dogs and puppies: $250
-Cats and kittens: $150
-Two cats or kittens (bonded pair price): $175
-Senior pets: $75 (dogs 8 and older, cats 10 and older)
An additional $50 deposit for unneutered or unspayed animal is collected until proof of alteration can be provided.

We only adopt to homes in the Chicagoland area.

Our fees include a full medical exam by a veterinarian. This includes a Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) test for cats, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, deworming and Spay/Neuter. Dogs receive a Heartworm Check, Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, Canine Flu Vaccine, deworming, and Kennel Cough preventative.

Our modest adoption fees do not cover the procedures and vet work that we provide the animals. We fundraise to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that C.A.R.E. is aware of are explained fully, (including daily medicine costs), to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.

Our adoption process has evolved from many years of experience. The goal of our adoption counselors is to make a good match between animal and family. We get to know each cat or dog's unique personality and different needs. If a specific dog, for example, has large amounts of energy and needs lots of space to run, it is unlikely that he would meet the needs of a person who works long hours and would be unable to exercise the dog. It would be a mismatch that would be bad for dog and human alike. Our adoption counselors look forward to working with you to help you find the right pet for your home.
