Sparrow's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Sparrow 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.

Sparrow would love a foster home while she waits to get adopted! Sparrow is a wonderful dog who adopted out by PAWS in 2012 and was found as a stray this year. She is now 9 years old and is looking for a foster home that can accommodate a senior dog. She has a harness for walks and has been picking up new tricks! (Who said an old dog can't learn new tricks?) Sparrow would benefit from continued training during some down time. She is a wonderful dog who still has a lot of energy!

How to Foster Sparrow:

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.

Hale is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn.

Meet Sparrow

Sparrow 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, schedule an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center! During your appointment, you’ll be able to meet all currently-adoptable animals at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center and walk through the adoption process with our staff and volunteers.

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 during your first visit to the Adoption Center, please feel free to schedule another appointment.

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.
