Get to Know Rocco
Mixed Breed (Large)
Lincoln Park Adoption Center
Type of Foster Home:
Rocco 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.
Rocco would love a foster home while he waits to get adopted! This good boy was found tied up outside, and brought to PAWS by a good Samaritan! He's understandably a little stressed in the shelter, but he's making lots of new friends quickly. Rocco loves cookies and squeaky toys, and would love a home with ample space to play! He must go to a home with fenced-in yard. He's looking to be the only pet in a home with kids 15 and older.
How to Foster Rocco:
New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pickup appointment.
Rocco is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn.
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!

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!
