Featured Pets | PAWS Chicago

Don't Forget Me

All the animals featured here are unique and loving, and need just a little extra from their adopter. They may have medical needs, movement restrictions, or a dislike of elevators. They might need a large back yard, a home with no children, or a little extra time to warm up to their new home. Although there may be extra effort involved in adopting one of these sweet friends, the rewards that come will be all the greater when you see how bright they shine thanks to your love. If you want to save a life - and be a hero - this is the place to start because you'll never find a more grateful companion than the animals below. 

Each one needs just the right home, so please make sure you consult your ComPETibility quiz score when you fill out your application to make sure your home can meet their needs. You'll hear back from one of our adoption counselors if they think there's a match! 

Not sure about the commitment? Foster First!

Our "Foster First" program gives adopters a chance to incorporate a pet into their lives without making a permanent commitment. Pets win too, because every day with a loving foster family is chance develop the skills they need to thrive in a home. Fostering First also gives you the chance to fall in love with a special pet while getting medical, behavioral, and food support from PAWS.  

Interested?  You can start the process by filling out a Foster Application. Already an approved foster? Email us at ACFoster@PAWSChicago.org
