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
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
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. ***

Not good with kids, Needs experienced adopter, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Emily is looking for a great fur-ever home! She is a 10 pound, female shih-tzu born on 12/05/21. Emily was released by a breeder who decided they did not need her anymore and has never been bred. She has lived in a cage her entire life, so she is not house or leash trained. Because Emily is very skittish and fearful, she will do best in a quiet home with a patient, experienced adopter (with no young children) willing to work with her and let her get comfortable at her own pace. She will need a fenced yard with another calm, socialized dog to teach her the ropes. She is starting to show her adventurous side by exploring her foster home, enjoying looking out the window, and being outside. Emily will be spayed at one of our approved vet clinics in the Chicago area prior to adoption. She is up to date on shots, micro-chipped, and heart-worm & fecal tested negative. We require an application, phone interview, virtual house check, and meet and greet with your entire family. Send us an email at petprofilerescue@gmail.com for a for an adoption application or apply online at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1S5v9x1oGSYLBSfheZJ_zSvkIHoT3Fe_xnsq5V75IX9w/edit?fbclid=IwAR0rU1zQezgZhhC_01_JpMFhujOq40cu8Xl4xKdiZ0b1L-3Pwm1Et-XI3K4 If you have already submitted an application to us, send us an email, expressing your interest in this dog.
