Home for the Holidays: Dog Adoption Promotion

About The Event

The Anti-Cruelty Society needs your help to find loving homes for shelter dogs this holiday. To help make this happen, we’re offering 1/2 price adoption fees for ALL dogs 35 pound or larger through December 23 at the Society’s River North Adoption Center and at our Everyday Adoption Center in the South Loop PetSmart.

Take time to review our adoption process before you drop in. If you can provide a home during this holiday season, not only are you adding a new member to the family, you are also making space for other animals in need while they await their forever homes.  

Both locations are offering drop-in adoptions on a first-come, first-serve basis. View available animals at each of our locations by filtering by location. 
Please note: Due to capacity issues at the River North Adoption Center, you may be asked to wait or perhaps return the next day.
