About PAWS Chicago’s Featured 5 Adoption Program

Meet our Featured 5 - five cats and five dogs who have been with us for a while and are looking for a life-long home. Because these wonderful pets need special adopters who can provide them with specific lifestyle and health needs, they have often been overlooked. For example a big, energetic dog may need a large yard to run in, while an elderly cat may need an adopter who can care for a manageable health condition.

PAWS Chicago is committed to finding the perfect home for every cat and dog in our adoption program, so we created the Featured 5 program to make it easier for adopters to give these special cats and dogs the care they need for a happy and healthy life together. Not only will you receive a lifetime of love, but you will receive special adoption benefits when you welcome a Featured 5 pet into your home.

Adopter Benefits

When you adopt a cat or dog who is a part of PAWS Chicago’s Featured 5 program, you will receive:

  • FREE Merrick Pet Care or PAWS prescribed cat or dog food for one year
  • FREE 30-day supply of existing medications
  • FREE training consultation with a PAWS Chicago trainer or recommended behaviorist (for dog adoptions only)
