Wally's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Wally 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.

Wally would love a foster home while he waits to get adopted! Wally is a sweetie! He's a shy little guy who would do best in a quiet home and low-traffic neighborhood with an adults-only foster family who can give him some time to acclimate and come out of his shell. Unfortunately, he's afraid of men so he will need to go to a women-only household. Wally may get along well with the right dog, but he's not cat-friendly. While he may be wary at first, Wally will warm up to you quickly and then is just the sweetest!

How to Foster Wally:

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.

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

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!
