Sadie's Story

Sadie is a sweet, affectionate girl who needs a lot of time to build trust. Sadie prefers the company of adult women – kids are just too scary! She likes going on long walks (she recently went hiking at Starved Rock State Park!) and hanging out with her person. She also enjoys playing with other dogs who are respectful of her space and don't push her too hard.


Are you Sadie’s forever family? You might be if you have a quiet home and neighborhood, and no kids, and are committed to positive training – to teach Sadie that the world isn’t so scary. 

Meet Sadie

Sadie 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, schedule an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center! During your appointment, you’ll be able to meet all currently-adoptable animals at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center and walk through the adoption process with our staff and volunteers.

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 during your first visit to the Adoption Center, please feel free to schedule another appointment.

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.

Want another way to spend time with our adoptable (or soon-to-be-adoptable) pets? Consider fostering.
