Orion's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Orion would love a foster home while he waits to get adopted! Orion is a big, handsome fella. We're not positive, but his head might have its own center of gravity, too! Orion has been through quite a bit in his short life, but he's resilient and has made a lot of friends since coming back to the Adoption Center. He's looking for a foster home where he'd be the only pet and can live with kids 8 and up. His foster home must also have a fully fenced-in yard or live in a low traffic area.

How to Foster Orion:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Orion is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave. or transferable through his current foster home.

Why Adopt?

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!
