Root'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. 

Root is recovering from an upper respiratory infection. He needs 1-2 weeks in foster to recover. He is a level 2 due to his mouthy puppy behavior.

How to Foster: 

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email fosterplacement@pawschicago.org to schedule a pickup appointment. 

You will need to pick-up Root through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th Street.

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!
