Nero's Story

Type of Foster Home:  

Nero is a smart, 1-year-old Shepherd mix. He is needing an active foster home that is able to do continued training and long walks with him. He is an active boy and needs structure. He is willing and eager to train. He'd do best in a home with kids 8 and older.

The foster will need to pick-up Nero at the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave.

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!

First Time Fostering? Learn More

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!
