Whiskers is the newest tiny terrier addition to AAP. He weighs in at about 7 lb. and is just 1.5 years old. This little one is the definition of sweet, gentle and loveable. We basically intercepted him just as he was being given up at animal control because the young woman who owned him was unable to keep him.
So while we don't know very much about him yet, we can tell you that we haven't yet heard a peep come out of him, he's very content to be held and he walks super on a leash. He seems to be fine with other dogs as well as cats and just wants somebody to take him home so he can return to a normal life.
You can meet little Whiskers at Wilmette Pet Center (625 Green Bay Road) anytime during store hours 7 days a week. Although you may want to adopt him on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.
Whiskers adoption fee of $325 includes vet exam, heartworm test, distemper combo vaccination, rabies and bordetella vaccinations, routine deworm, microchip and neuter.
ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.
ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.
ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.
ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.
ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.
ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.
Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org
Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.
How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
Adopt-A-Pet serves Chicagoland area and north, northwest, and west suburbs.
