He has endearing mannerisms like crossing his paws. He is perfectly housebroken and knows the commands sit and down and takes treats ever so gently from your fingers. ... (Read More)Tiger is trained to sleep in a dog bed next to his human's bed. Tiger is living with a family with six and a seven-year-old children and is phenomenal with them. However, when Tiger is over-stimulated and excited in ball playing mode, he doesn't really notice little kids in his path and accidentally bit a child while going for a tennis ball. Sadly, with the revolving door of little kids that comes to Tiger's home, his family feels he will do better in a home with teens and adults in the home. And, he'd love a fun companion dog to play with! Tiger was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control four months ago and the family has invested in a ton of training and daily exercise. They wish they could keep Tiger, but it's just not the right fit for a family with young children. Tiger is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact Michelle at mpetersen11@gmail.com or 312-618-7667. He is currently living in Northbrook, Illinois. His adoption fee of $100 benefits rescued pets.

Sometimes when you reach to pet him he flattens to the ground as if he's accustomed to being hit. It breaks your heart to see that response. However, with time and love he should learn to be more trusting. Dusty is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and virus-tested. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact his foster mom Michele at micim8984@yahoo.com or call her at 773-552-4619. His adoption fee of $75 benefits the rescued dogs and cats of Famous Fido's.

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Rookie is a sweet, loving and cuddly, two-year-old, 43-pound, female brindle and white pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Rookie has some of the most beautiful musculature I've ever seen on a dog. While she's not a dog-park dog, she does have select dog friends, and she does play in some doggie play groups. Rookie is a hockey fan and was recently spotted snuggling with her hero Chicago Blackhawks player Patrick Sharp (as seen in the photo!) This muscle girl is wonderfully well-behaved in the home. She is also beautifully trained. She knows the commands 'take a bow,' 'sit,' and 'down.' She's great with people of all ages ... (Read More)including children and has worked with incarcerated youth. Rookie loves to give kisses and will do anything for favorite treat '| string cheese. Rookie is great on leash, crate-trained, and housebroken. She loves balls and loves to play fetch. Poor Rookie landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control in June of 2013 with her five puppies. Her human was arrested on drug and gun charges. She and her pups were confiscated and brought to the shelter. After months in a cage, her human lost custody and she was able to go into rescue. Rookie is very healthy, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. She may do best as the only dog in her home, and with someone willing to continue her training and give her exercise. She comes with a lifetime of complimentary training through the rescue group. To meet and possibly adopt Rookie, please contact her foster mom Sia at amgproutsos@yahoo.com or 773-576-4611. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. (Less)

    Semi-Feral, Cat-Loving Feline Needs a Loving Guardian... Petra is a gorgeous, three-year-old, female brown and white classic tabby with golden eyes looking for a loving guardian. Petra was being fed outside and she was very consistent about showing up at the same place and same time every day. In fact, she would meow persistently. A friend told me about this beautiful and special cat. I went to meet her and took her home (in a trap). When I brought her in to get spayed, I found that she had trapped a couple times before ... so she had already been spayed and micro-chipped. So, I got her vaccines up-dated, and had her re-checked for viruses, ... (Read More)and treated for fleas and worms. Petra doesn't have much use for humans. She likes when they keep her well-fed ... she loves her canned food. And she's very neat and tidy and uses her litter box perfectly. She does enjoy the company of other cats and hangs out with them happily in my house ... until I come in the room. And, then she goes back to her cat tree to hide. It's a bit insulting, but I think a patient cat-loving person can bring her around to appreciating humans a bit more. Petra is extremely healthy, spayed, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped, virus-tested negative and treated with revolution for fleas and worms. To meet and possibly adopt Petra, please contact me directly at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. She is currently living in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago. (Less)

Just imagine how much he can learn with proper training! He has quickly learned the command sit, takes treats gently from your fingers, and is happily learning more lessons in his foster home. Simon on his own, is extremely calm and incredibly gentle. He rises to the occasion to play with other ... (Read More)dogs and he has been absolutely wonderful with every dog he has met thus far ... from Ridgebacks to Goldens and Beagles to Boxers. He's also fabulous with people of all sizes and ages ... In his foster home, he has met humans from six-years-old and up. He's just got a fantastic temperament. Simon loves to play both with other dogs and with his toys. He enjoys gutting stuffed animals to rescue their squeakers, and rope toys are the best for tugging with his foster dog friends. Simon is great on leash, wonderful in the car ... he was even lucky enough to go on a road trip to Wisconsin with his foster family and their three dogs. He loves the beach and while he followed the other dogs into the water, he didn't really go swimming. Simon is housebroken and in the process of being crate-trained ... it helps that his foster mom fills his Kong with lots of great snacks to keep him occupied. Simon is healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Simon, please contact his foster mom Aggie at adorosz@yahoo.com or 773-980-0250.

    Morgon is a handsome, affectionate, muscular and energetic, four-year-old, 65-pound, male pit bull terrier looking for a loving guardian. Sadly, Morgon was found tied to a tree during the Chicago blizzard of February 2011. He landed in a cage at Chicago Animal Care & Control which at least was warmer. But, when no one claimed him, he was slated for euthanasia due to over-crowding. K9 4 Keeps Rescue took this boy in and has been working with him ever since on trust and training. Morgon needs a little time to warm up to new people. Luckily he is very food-motivated, so earning his trust is as easy as offering him a treat. He is a happy, ... (Read More)energetic, loving dog who wants nothing more than to be someone's loyal and loved companion. Morgon is an inspiration and an example of what consistency and love can do for a dog. Morgon loves to play ball and tug. He does get over-stimulated when excited, so he is looking for a calm dog-experienced guardian who will keep Morgon working; he is happiest when he has a job to do. Morgon is no couch potato; he's more of a running buddy for an active outdoorsy person. Morgon is great in the car, and very attentive to his people. He's strong on leash, so he needs an equally strong leader to guide him. He knows the commands sit and down and takes treats nicely from your fingers. He is also fantastic at catching a treat mid-air. Morgon is good with select dogs; his current best friend and playmate is a female pit bull terrier. To meet and possibly adopt Morgon, please contact K94Keeps rescue at info@k94keeps.org or 312-221-9285.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Benjamin is a gorgeous, agile, incredibly sweet, playful, snugly and loving, three-year-old, 15-pound, male, amber-eyed orange tabby cat looking for a loving guardian. He has a squeaky happy purr and adores being pet and loved. He gets along beautifully with other cats ... and he is fine with gentle-natured dogs who don't chase him. He has perfect litter box habits and uses his scratching post like a good boy. Benjamin was adopted from Chicago Animal Care and Control as a tiny kitten. He was returned three years later when his human moved out of state. Upon his return it was discovered that he has a severe heart murmur (grade four out of ... (Read More)six) and he was diagnosed with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. The cardiologist mentioned that the average lifespan for a cat with this genetic disorder is seven years. At this point, he is completely asymptomatic and leads a normal and happy cat life. He is on inexpensive medication twice daily to keep him healthy for as long as possible. Luckily he's the easiest cat I've ever had to medicate ... I give him his pill wrapped in a chicken pill pocket and he takes it happily. It doesn't get any easier than that! And, his medication only costs $2.00 a month. Benjamin is otherwise a healthy, happy boy. He is neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and virus-tested. To meet and possibly adopt him, please contact Sheri at sheri@petraits.com or 773-777-2891. His adoption fee of $95 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control.
