Misty's Story...
Hello there! My name is Misty and I am a beautiful black, female cat with gorgeous yellow/green eyes. It is believed that I am between three and five years old. It was a cold, snowy day this past March when two wonderful people found me huddled in a snowbank by the side of the road. I was hungry and very skinny, but they brought me into a warm house and took good care of me. I am so happy now that all I want to do is sit in your lap, have you pet me and let my loud purring show my gratitude. I would prefer a warm human lap to sit in. I have so much love to give! I hope you could be my forever home. If you are looking for two cats, please check out other Adopt-A-Pet cats!

Misty's adoption fee of $115 includes: vet exam, fiv/feleuk test (neg), distemper combo vaccination, rabies vaccination, routine deworming, microchip, flea control and spay.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

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...

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.
