Adoptable Critters


How? HOW? How is this AMAZING dog our longest resident?! Christopher was relinquished to us in November 2022, briefly adopted, and has been back with us since February.

Christopher is one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen. He is tall, slender, pure white and has a regal stance. He’s a 1-year-old Shepherd and full of hope to find a family! Christopher LOVES other dogs. He could play all day! It’s adorable to see a giant dog like him play like a puppy! Christopher is smart- he knows his basic commands “sit, down, shake.” He walks good on a leash and enjoys a good walk in the forest preserves to his smell nature.

Christopher is truly an amazing dog that has been overlooked for way too long! He will need a Shepherd savvy home with no small children, but a home with dogs is always a bonus to him!


Meet stunning and graceful, 3-1/2-year-old, Grayce. This silver female loves chilling in one of the many cubbies our adoptable room has to offer, playing, and grabbing our volunteer’s attention. Although she does ok with other cats, she would much rather be the princess of the home sitting on her throne cubby. Who’s looking for that single feline companion to keep them company as we get into this sweater weather?


Meet Hardy! She is 2.5 years old and was given up to the shelter seven months ago. She isn’t handling being in a cage super well and so she isn’t showing well. She wants to seek affection, but she’s guarded - you have to earn her trust, and when you do, she’ll reward you with purrs and head butts.

She loves cuddling with her moose toy and can’t wait to have a human to share cuddles with too! Hardy would prefer to be your one and only princess but may be okay with another low-key cat after a proper introduction. Please consider giving this sweet girl a forever home!


Melody may only have 3 legs, but she has all the heart a dog can have! This sweet girl was abandoned outside our doors years ago with a mangled leg. Her leg eventually needed to be amputated, but Melody never stopped smiling. Melody was recently returned due to no fault of her own (her owner got a new job), and she is desperately looking for a forever home to cherish her. Melody isn’t a big fan of other animals, so she prefers to be your only pet.


Millie is a gorgeous and sassy 2-year-old girl who is tired of waiting for a FURever home!! She can be a sweet girl sometimes but right now; she is tired of going back in her cage after play time and is anxious to find a home to settle in that understands her. She can be sassy so an experienced home would be best. Come give our Millie girl a FURever home to relax in and acclimate. Her cuteness makes up for her sassy moments!


Ophelia is a shy, but super sweet cat who needs her human to have a bit of patience so she can open up and be herself. She likes to cuddle up in her blankets and just relax. A calm home would be best for this scaredy cat.


Punch came to PAWS as a stray. He isn’t fond of the shelter environment, so a wonderful volunteer is fostering. Once in a home, he blossomed into the ‘pet’ we knew he was. He loves his walks and when he returns, he is all for snuggling up on the sofa. He knows basic commands and Sits and Waits on command when feeding and when picking up his droppings on a walk. He does well when crated. If you are looking for a friend to walk or snuggle, Punch is your boy!! Please call ahead if you would like to meet Punch so we can be sure he is available.


Sylvester is one cool cat! He came to us as a stray and while he looks like a cattle dog, at 75 pounds he’s a bit big for that title! We may never truly know what his breed is, but we do know that he is awesome! He’s a very nice dog who can’t wait to start his new life with a wonderful family! CAT
