Lynda's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Lynda 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.

Lynda is a wonderful 12 year old senior dog who weighs about 38 pounds. She loves people, treats, and training. She's basically a couch potato but still loves enrichment that challenges her. She is dog reactive so she would need to be the only pet in the home. Someone who lives in a low dog traffic area would also be ideal for this girl. She is healthy and ready for adoption but would love some time outside of the shelter. If you'd like to give this girl a place to relax until then, please reach out to us!

How to Foster Lynda:

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.

Lynda is available for foster pick-up through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th St.

Meet Lynda

Lynda 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.
