Orson would love to go home with you!
He is part of PAWS Chicago’sand is nearly ready for adoption, but first needs a little extra time and TLC as he recuperates from the Canine Influenza Virus (CIV). CIV is a flu, not a life-threatening disease, but dogs who have it are contagious for up to 30 days.
Thank you for considering welcoming one of these wonderful animals into your home! To read more about the Foster First program, please click.

Adoption is one of the best ways to save a life. Only a few thousand more adoptions each year in Chicago, a city of millions of people, and we will be a No Kill community! You can make a real difference.
At PAWS Chicago, we keep working to grow our operations to save more homeless pets. It's how we've gone from saving a few dozen to 6,000 pets a year. But it is our adopters who make the real magic happen by bringing these loving pets home. Adopt a pet and spread the word!

Our foster families enable us to take in more pets at risk. Some require a quiet place to heal from illness or injury; small puppies and kittens need a nurturing place to grow before they are able to be spayed or neutered and adopted; and others just need socialization and a break from the activity of Adoption Center living. Become a foster parent and help homeless pets in need!
