The Anti-Cruelty Society needs help finding great homes for big dogs. To assist these large canines find great owners, the Society is offering a Big Dogs = Big Love promotion for dogs 40 pounds or larger with a special adoption fee of $40 through February 28. 

The Society has experienced a 30% decrease in animal adoptions in the last year, especially for dogs over 40 pounds. Currently there are more than 27 canines that weigh more than 40 pounds waiting for their forever homes, and many have been available for more than 30 days. 

The Society’s adoption experience team will help each interested adopter meet their canine match. There are several things to consider before bringing a large dog home: Big dogs cost more to feed; big dogs need plenty of exercise; big dogs need space; and big dogs may need additional training. Before adoption, every dog is spayed or neutered. In addition, each animal receives a thorough vet exam, updated vaccines, and a microchip.

“We know that not everyone can adopt a big dog, however we hope that people will share this adoption promotion with their friends and family to help us find homes for these large pups, said Lydia Krupinski, Vice President of Mission Impact at The Anti-Cruelty Society. If we all work together, we can spread the word that large dogs have lots of love to give, just as much as their smaller counterparts.”

Interested adopters can make a VIP appointment or drop in to adopt at the Society’s River North Adoption Center, 510 N. LaSalle Dr., Chicago or visit the Society’s Everyday Adoption Center located inside the PetSmart’s South Loop, 1101 S. Canal, Chicago.
