Thank you to all who visited him. 

Corey

Watch Corey's "Adopt-a-Pet" segment on NBC5 Chicago here.

Corey is a 3-year old Welsh Corgi/Cardigan mix who has been with us a very short time and has already developed a fairly loyal fan following. He originally came from Kentucky to one of our rescue partners here in Chicago. It's not surprising that his incredible adorability, ideal size, and irresistible charm helped him land two adoptions, but it turns out that this little guy is a whole lot more dog than either family expected or was prepared for, so he quickly ended up back at the rescue. We agreed to help him find his forever home...third time is a charm, they say. You see, Corey is not your average three-year-old dog, by most peoples' standards. He gets into stuff, he's easily frustrated and can be quite a loud-mouth about it, and he grabs and gnaws on things he shouldn't (especially people parts). That said, he's undeniably wonderful...playful, silly, confident, inquisitive, fun, friendly and endlessly entertaining.  Please  check out Corey's complete bio on the adoption page to read more about Corey's perfect home.  You can also watch Corey's very own video, just click HERE to view it!  Because Corey is a special adoption, he will not be found on the adoption floor. Inquiries and applications will be directed to our Behavior and Training staff, who will be happy to work closely with potential adopters to help make a forever match!  Just ask for Corey, #21700816.

Of course, you'll be getting the rest of them!  He seems to be overwhelmed by children, so teens and adults only for him.  Oli had an upper respiratory infection that was difficult for him to shake.  He's feeling good now, but he could have a flare up in the future that might require a trip to the vet for antibiotics.  Stress is the most likely trigger of another infection - but it's hard to believe this cat could ever be that stressed!  Mr. Mellow here is waiting to meet you; won't you come say hello?  Just ask for Oli, #17294497.

Missy is a fun, spritely little 4-year old Jack Russell Terrier mix who is full of energy and excitement.  She came to the shelter when her owner was moving and couldn't take her along.  Missy is active and will plenty of exercise; she loves tennis balls, so fetch will be a good way to keep her happy and burn off some of her energy.  In fact, Missy has her very own video, click HERE to see her out having fun chasing a ball!  This is a smart breed and though she currently does not have anything in way of a vocabulary, she should be able to learn quickly given the right motivation (treats, balls, etc).  Basic manners training is recommended to kick off her training, but she'll likely prove herself to be a rock star agility and/or trick dog. She has shown that she may like to be the only pet in the  household.   Come visit Missy today, just ask for #16961665.

She is a Rhodesian ridgeback cross, very energetic, and is a fast learner. She needs to live with someone who can give her the right amount of exercise and stimulation to be able to live up to her great potential. She has been known to like some dogs very much, but has shied away from others, and should meet any new dog companions first to test the waters.

The transition from 24/7 mom to just a dog will have its challenges. We have seen what a wonderful dog Rita is and have become quite attached to her ourselves, but we want her to have a great home of her own. So we will offer all of our many resources to help make the transition as easy as possible.

Normally all of our adoptions are first come/first served, but we have a special interest in making sure Rita gets the best home that she can, so we are inviting prospective adopters to write in to tell us why you should be that home. Drop us a line at info@anticruelty.org  (put Rita in the subject line) and tell us about your family, housing, other pets and veterinary references.

When she's not snuggling with a human she's exploring her surroundings, sniffing in every corner and checking out every door.  Taffy stars in her very own video, just click HERE to see it! She had no interest in resources during her evaluation so new adopters may have to put a little extra effort into finding out what Taffy likes with regards to treats and toys.

She will need appropriate guidance, training/confidence building, as she has likely had limited exposure to anything outside her previous Mississippi home. She also may end up being a fairly skilled jumper and climber. She climbed and perched herself onto a fairly narrow ledge in order to look out the window. Activities such as agility classes may be a great outlet for her to productively (and safely) channel her energy, coordination and skills, and are a great way to enhance the person/pet relationship.

Watch Buddie's "Adopt-a-Pet" segment on NBC5 Chicago here.

Please come meet Buddie!  This very pretty girl is a 2-year old torbie.  She has beautiful shades of brown throughout her lovely coat with just the slightest tabby striping.  Buddie came to the shelter when her owner had too many cats and couldn't keep her.  She is loaded with personality and is fun and curious, and totally loved looking out the window of the shelter watching the world go by.  A home with lots of room for her to run and play will keep Buddie healthy and happy!  And, of course, some fun kitty toys and maybe some nice windows for her to look out of, and life will be heaven for Buddie!  Won't you come and meet this pretty girl?  She is patiently waiting for you at The Anti-Cruelty Society, just ask for Buddie, #13093463.  Don't wait long, Buddie is sure to have lots of admirers and she's ready to go home with you today!

SHEBA HAS BEEN ADOPTED!

Thank you to all who visited her.

Sheba

To meet Sheba is not only to love her -- but to ADORE her! This beautiful girl is very endearing, gentle and laid-back. Sheba is a 7-year old Rottweiler mix who came to the shelter when her owner was moving and couldn't take her along. Sheba is a sweet and mellow girl who seeks attention and leans her head on everyone and anyone near her. Sheba knows some basic commands such as "sit", is easy on the leash and takes treats gently. She is a quiet and calm lady who has a low activity level and just wants to spend her life loving you. Sheba is a bit full-figured, weighing in at 97 lbs., and helping Sheba slim down once in her new home will keep her healthy and happy. Sheba would be a great addition to the family, however, Sheba probably would be happiest as your only pet -- but then with Sheba around, why would you need anyone else! A home without children is preferred due to Sheba's size and strength -- yet, Sheba would do GREAT in an all-adult home. Sheba has already stolen many hearts at the shelter and once you meet her, you will soon see why.  Click HERE to see Sheba's newest video  (added 8/31/11) and HERE to see her first video.  You will  see how sweet she really is!  Sheba may be a big girl, but she has a heart just as big -- won't you come and meet her? Sheba is available for hugs and love at The Anti-Cruelty Society, just ask for #12355654.
