Story
Alumni Super Sweet Senior, Mickey Seeking A Forever Home! Poor Mickey! Through no fault of his own he has had at least 4 homes! We found him in 2016 at a community free access shelter at the height of the canine flu! Not only was that a strike against bim but he had broken toes and was next in line to the euth room. We got him our in the nick of time. We covered his medical care. He improved, and healed and landed a lovely new Mom. Sadly Coved him and his mom passed. The family sent Mickey to live with a family friend that adored him. Sadly, his new Mom fell ill and needed to relinquish him to us. No Micky is on the hunt for a forever family that won't let him down. Mickey is a very gentle boy that loves everyone. He is pretty quiet, happy to take long naps in between wandering around the yard, sitting on a deck or taking a walk. He is also happy to nap with you and the family cat! He is quiet and always hoping yummy food might drop his way. He gets along with everyone. He was pee pad trained which might be helpful. We estimate he is 14ish.. He is a healthy fella although has had some allergy issues in the past and recovered IVDD. Mickey is fully vetted, He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is heartworm negative, His adoption donation is $450.00. He is on the hunt for his own completely committed family, Little Dogs can live to be 25 years old so he wants to be sure al for better or for worse! We adopt in the local Chicago metro area. We require home visits, If you would like to apply to be considered as an adoption candidate to adopt Mickey please fill out an application for his adoption on our website at: https://www.rescuetailsanimalwelfare.org/info/adoption We are all volunteers with full time jobs.

Story
Fluffy’s person surrendered him to our center saying they didn’t want to take care of him anymore. He’s a senior dog and needs extra care and really depended on his person to be there for him. Now, he’s completely heartbroken. Fluffy has a collapsed trachea, a grade 5 heart murmur, and an ulcer affecting his eye. His care can be managed, but he needs a special person who will see him through. He is very sweet and friendly. He can be around other dogs, ideally other seniors, or gentle canines that understand he hasn’t got a lot of desire to play.

Story
She is a little cutie who has a teenager attitude. We don't know much about her, she came to us shaved down, so we don't know if she sheds or how long her hair normally is. She is mostly potty trained, she does not know any commands, but she is treat motivated and smart, she already understands the words "potty" and "come". We have not tried her in a crate. She gets along with other little dogs, unsure about cats. She could learn well from a second dog. She gives lots of kisses and her tail is constantly wagging. She loves to run and gets the "zoomies" Her ideal family is one with older children, or young adult household. Adoption fee is $320Email: dogs@almosthomefoundation.orgAlmost Home Foundation's adoption requirements:(1) Be at least 21 years of age;(2) Have the consent of all adults living in the household;(3) Have approval from the residence owner;(4) Have valid ID with current address;(5) Be approved by Almost Home Foundation as a suitable adoptive home; and`(6) Live in the suburbs surrounding Schaumburg (Illinois Residents only)*** Please note that Almost Home Foundation accepts only cash or checks for adoption fees; we do not accept debit or credit cards. ***

Story
If you're looking for a low-maintenance, well-behaved, friendly and handsome seasoned citizen, Jeffrey may be your guy. Jeffrey needs a patient human companion as he is a special needs dog with three good legs and one that he struggles with. It would be best if he is in a single level home with no stairs or children; other dogs are ok. He is completely house broken, loves people and being the center of attention and will bring loads of joy into your home. Jeffrey does great in the car and on short and slow walks. In the grass he is a little more comfortable and confident with his leg.You do not need a crate for Jeffrey as he does well when left alone. He is totally flexible where he sleeps and he will sleep in-which can be a bonus if you're not an early morning person. He loves having his ears scratched, he eats well and can be content as a couch potato. Come see Jeffrey today and be prepared to have your heart strings tugged!Interested in adopting this dog? Visit our website (http://www.SecondCityCanineRescue.org) to fill out an application and to find out where this dog may be shown this weekend. We love our dogs. We want happy lives for all of them and are looking for the home that provides the best fit for each dog's individual needs. Please understand that there may be multiple families interested in this dog. Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don't know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.

Story
AEAR rescued Lexi when no other shelter or rescue was able to help her. She came to us in pretty bad condition but is getting better every day. Lexi lived with seniors who loved her but were not able to properly care for her. First stop was the groomer because she was matted down to the skin. She is being treated for a yeast infection in her ears. Her sight is limited by cherry eye, which we will have corrected with surgery. Despite everything, Lexi is a happy little dog who loves everyone. Her favorite treat is a Pup Cup from Dairy Dream. We look forward to the day Lexi is having sweet dreams in her forever home._________________________________________________________________________Adoption Donation for Lexi is $ 350.00WANT TO MEET LexiThe first step would be for you to go to our website at www.aear.org and then to the “Adopting a Pet” page to read about our Adoption Process which will answer many of your questions and then to fill out an Adoption Application.Also, please visit our very active Facebook Page for updates on Lexi and our other adoptable pets with AEAR - www.facebook.com/aear.orgAll our animals available for adoption are living in foster homes.
