In partnership with PetSmart Charities, we have a full adoption center in Chicago’s South Loop PetSmart store that hosts approximately 25 dogs, 15 cats, and a variety of small animals for adoption. This dog, cat, and small adoption center is one of twenty Everyday Adoption Centers in the United States. The EAC is in addition to the cat adoption program that we have in our 5 other local PetSmart locations. These locations have helped us reach almost 2,000 additional adoptions each year.

This adoption model encourages adoption over purchasing pets from a traditional pet store. The Everyday Adoption Center features a dog playroom where spectators can watch the dogs play with one another. Three animal meet and greet rooms are available to prospective adopters so they can meet-and-greet with cats and dogs in private setting, creating a warm welcoming atmosphere for all visitors. This center is helping us to continue our mission of building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.

Visit the Everyday Adoption Center within the South Loop PetSmart Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m.–7:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. To view a list of animals currently available for adoption visit our cat, dog and small animal galleries.


Our Everyday Adoption Center is Located in the south end of the South Gate Market, inside the South Loop PetSmart. The PetSmart store is underneath the Whole Foods Market near the corner of Canal and Roosevelt. Parking is free in the PetSmart lot that is located on the bottom level of the Whole Foods parking garage.
