Bess's Story

Type of Foster Home:  

We are looking for a Core Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be a Core Foster. 

Bess is a healthy, 1-year-old female pup who is around 45 pounds. Bess is very energetic, very affectionate, and a joy to train. She needs a foster home that is dedicated to helping with her continuous training! She is a squirmy girl who just wants to cuddle. She would do best in a home that has kids 8 and up.

How to Foster: 

New fosters can take the first step bylearning about fosteringand completing theFoster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can emailfosterplacement@pawschicago.orgto schedule a pickup appointment. 

You will need to pick-up Bess through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th St. or at our 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!
