Dog of the Week
Meet Chief! This handsome one old year old boy in true Labrador style is still very much a puppy. He is social and friendly and anxious to make new friends. Chief is very active and will need a home that can provide with exercise and outlets for his vast energy. He is quite a handful and thinks that the world is his play ground. He will do best in an experienced home with older children; one that has the time and patience to teach him some simple manners. Chief knows sit and down and takes direction nicely so in the right home should blossom into a wonderful canine citizen. Another very playful doggy sibling would be the only match for Chief's energized play style. If you are in the market for a sweet boy who may be a bit of a challenge, then stop by the shelter to meet Chief. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all their vaccinations prior to adoption. For more information on Chief, or any of our other adoptable animals, please give us a call at 847-697-2880 or stop by the shelter during our open hours.
Cat of the Week
Alvin may not look to happy about the hat, but he sure does wear it well. Sadly, Alvin was abandoned on our front stoop one morning on a freezing day in January 2011. He does have impaired vision but Alvin is extremely friendly and cuddly and wants a loving, forever home very badly. Alvin is FIV+, an immunodeficiency disease that is much like HIV in humans. Even with this disease, he is still able to live a full and healthy life. FIV is not contagious to humans or dogs but is transmittable cat to cat by blood transfer such as deep bite wounds. Unfortunately, it is very common for FIV+ cats in shelters to be overlooked and they never find their forever home. If you are looking to make a real difference and truly rescue a kitty in need, please consider adopting one with FIV+ at our reduced adoption fee of $50.00. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all their vaccinations prior to adoption. For more information on Alvin, or any of our other adoptable animals, please give us a call at 847-697-2880 or stop by the shelter during our open hours.
