Calinda's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Calinda needs an Advanced Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be an Advanced Foster.

Calinda is a 2-year-old mixed breed pup that weighs about 23 pounds. She is a sweet girl that needs some time outside of the shelter environment to decompress. Calinda would do well with another calm, confident dog in the home. She has Heartworm which she is being treated for but will require trips back to our facilities for treatments.

How to Foster Calinda:

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.

Calinda is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave. or at our Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th St.

Meet Calinda

Calinda 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.
