Available Animals for Adoption

To follow best practices recommended by the CDC for social distancing, we will continue to offer services to the public with the following changes to programs and procedures:

Adoption Programs

Open adoption hours are suspended immediately, and we will be facilitating adoptions by appointment only. We still need to find homes for our shelter pets so they can start their new life with a family and free up cage space for another pet in need.

Step 1.  Visit our website and Facebook page to learn more information about animals up for adoption.

Step 2. Call our office at 630-407-2800 to speak with a staff member about a pet you are interested in.

Step 3. If you are interested in meeting a pet, complete an adoption application and email it to animalservices@dupageco.org

Step 4. Once your application is approved, staff will call you to schedule an in-person meet and greet with that pet. Please note that a submitted application does not place that pet on hold for you or guarantee you will be able to meet that pet.

Step 5. Meet the pet, fall in love, and go home that same day with your new pet.
