paw print Dog Shelters in Illinois


There are many rescue and shelter groups in the state of Illinois that take in unwanted, abandon, or abused dogs. The Rescue organizations do a great job at preparing the dogs for adoption by providing the necessary veterinary care, training and socialization. An additional benefit to visiting a rescue shelter is the staff can help assist with finding the perfect dog for you.

An alternative option to visiting dog shelters in Illinois is the mobile adoption centers. You can find these at your local pet store and community events. One of the greatest aspects of this type of dog adoption is you are able to get to know the dogs outside of a cage unlike if you were to visit a shelter. The dogs will be socializing with many people and possibly other dogs. This will give you an idea as to whether the dog is a good fit for your family and lifestyle.

Adopting a dog is a great option, but careful thought and planning are needed before making this commitment.
