Epic's Story

This senior gentleman is looking to live out his best years yet. To Epic, age is just a number! Epic's foster family said, "Epic loves ham, long walks, new smells, cuddling on people and falling asleep on them, belly rubs, warm blankets, car rides, fluffy toys, and big morning stretches! He strongly dislikes fruits, vegetables, and being left alone. We will seriously miss the fact that his snoring starts before he's even fallen asleep to take a nap!"

Epic has an epic job that he takes very seriously in the home - greeter. He must say hello to everyone that walks in. His foster family reported that he loves to go to the door with as many toys as possible and say hello to whoever has walked in.

Are you Epic's forever family? You might be if you are home more often than not, have a similarly sized resident dog and don't have cats. Epic would love to live with another dog-pal so he doesn't miss you too much while you're out and about.

Meet Epic

Epic can’t wait to meet you!

If you’re interested in adopting this pet, there are few steps you must complete before scheduling an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center:

1.   Please start by taking our ComPETibility Quiz to make sure they’re a good fit for your home. Your ComPETibility Score will help you compare your home to their needs!

2.   After completing your ComPETibility Quiz, you will be emailed a link to complete your Adoption Application.

3.   Finally, complete our Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form! Once this form is submitted, our Adoption Team will take a look at your adoption inquiry and, if they have next steps, reach out within a few days.

Please note that while we can’t place holds on adoptable animals for your scheduled appointment, there are always plenty of homeless pets looking for a home! If you don’t meet the perfect pet, please feel free to complete a new Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form.

Please note that due to current COVID restrictions, to meet or adopt an available animal, you will need to schedule an adoption appointment for animals located at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center or complete a Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form for animals in a foster home.
