My story

Playful, active dog who LOVES people

Very strong and also can be very jumpy

Treat motivated and enjoys learning opportunities

Comes on very strong with other dogs; might be okay with another dog who is tolerant of Bourbon's play style

Might be ok in a home with a dog-savvy cat with a very slow introduction

Children should be at least 13 years old due to Bourbon's size and strength

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Dog and cat adoptions are the cornerstone of our mission and services. After more than 40 years of sheltering animals and placing them into loving homes, our work is still not done. There are thousands of animals in shelters waiting for homes across the Chicagoland area. We hope you will take some time to learn more about our adoption process and meet the pets currently available for adoption. NAHS strives to make appropriate, permanent matches between adopters and our cat and dog friends. Here is an outline of how the process works: Visit the shelter during our adoption hours to see if there is an animal that interests you. Walk-ins are allowed to see the cats; dogs are by appointment. Complete our brief "Pets and People Profile" and discuss it with an adoption counselor to determine if the animal is well suited for your family.

Go meet their pets

Animal meet-and-greets are by appointment only. Walk-ins are not permitted.

More about this shelter

The Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is a non-profit, limited admission animal shelter accepting cats and dogs. Our shelter can house as many as eighteen dogs and forty cats. Each animal is tenderly cared for at NAHS. Entering a shelter can be stressful or possibly even terrifying to some cats and dogs. Our dedicated and highly trained staff and over 300 volunteers offer compassionate care to each animal and work to address his or her individual needs. The staff works diligently to match the needs of each pet with a family eager to adopt a dog or cat. While at NAHS, all animals receive basic vaccinations as well as medical care. All animals are neutered or spayed before being released to their new owners. In addition, dogs’ temperaments are thoroughly assessed before being made available for adoption. Unfortunately, there continues to be far too many cats and dogs needing help in our society. Since we cannot solve this overwhelming problem ourselves, we have evolved our approach to the homeless animal crisis to include innovative community service initiatives, such as humane education and a behavior helpline, while we continue to re-home animals.
