Orion's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Orion 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.

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.

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.

Meet Orion

Orion 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.
