Helena's Story...
Helena is in a foster-to-adopt situation!



While walking the rows at Animal Care and Control, NLOL's intake directors were shocked to see this regal queen of a dog sitting in a cage. Dogs of all shapes and sizes (and ages) show up at ACC, but we always feel particularly bad for the seniors. This gal in particular was obviously someone's beloved pet at some point in her life - she is spayed and healthy, she is very friendly, and she knows sit, down, and shake. We were prepared to admit her but noticed that she had a tag on her card that anyone interested in her needed to speak with the adoptions manager. We asked him about this and he said it was just to make sure that nothing bad happened to her. He had seen that she was special and wanted to make sure that she wasn't put down due to her age. Well, he got his wish! Our volunteers just love Helena's white face and sweet demeanor. Check back soon for her bio!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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