Congratulations on joining an elite group of people affectionately known as “Failed Fosters.”
Don’t worry, this is a positive term! Being a Failed Foster means you fell for those puppy eyes or loving purrs so much that you cannot let go. Notify the PAWS Chicago Foster Team as soon as you know you want to adopt. We will provide you with the steps to adopt your foster pet.
- Everyone in the household should be present at the time of the adoption. Resident dogs should also come along if the potential adopter is adopting a dog.
- If you express your interest in adopting the animal after the foster period is over (once you’ve given the animal back to PAWS), we cannot guarantee the pet will remain available for you to adopt.
