Adoption Policies

OurAdoptionDonation includes spay/neuter, micro chip and all up-to-date vaccinations are given to your furry friend prior to adoption.

Please understand that some of our rescues have come from dark pasts and because of this we want the perfect home for them.

Sometimes we may refuse placement of an animal – for a number of reasons and if we feel it is not a good fit or the safety of the animal is comprised.

We want the highest-most fulfilling quality of life for all our animals and will not adopt out to anyone if the dog or cat of the adopter is planning on keeping the dog or cat outside or plan on tethering the dog.

Each and every application received is carefully reviewed as we begin the process of possible permanent placement of our felines and canines.

We obviously want the best home possible; and on rare occasions, we may consider foster-to-adopt to ensure it’s a good match for both humans and their new four-legged pet.

We follow-up on each application within a 24-48 hour response time; however if you require an immediate call or a faster response please call our adoption line at 708.227.9337.

We are happy to accommodate special requests, or questions you may have.

We rely on your donation to care for all of the homeless dogs and cats in our care. Your adoption fee helps pay for the costs of veterinary care given to your dog or cat prior to adoption.

Some additional care our four-legged friends may receive heartworm care; flea care and prevention, fecal testing, prevention medicine. Remember you’re not buying a dog, you are making a donation.

Out-of-state adoption may be considered, but we do not shop our companion dogs or cats to their new adopted families, Families must make the necessary arrangements and come to our facility.

Meet and Greets are scheduled by our adoption counselor and required between the family and their new potential new pet.

If all goes well, we will schedule an in-home visit to check for safety of the dog in his/her new home.

After a week after adoption, we will follow-up with the family to make sure there are no issues, if so, we will work together to resolve them.

In a month will do another check-in with the new adopters and visit with the family.

If for any reason, the family is unable to care for the dog; we will take back our Perfectly Posh pooch to ensure he is in a safe, responsible foster home until he is again adopted.
