FOSTER CANDIDATES AWAITING PLACEMENT


Updated: 5/25/18 11:48 a.m.


Snapdragon & Daffodil

Age: 1 month 13 days

Length of stay: Must be returned on Sunday, June 10

Reason for foster: Weight gain and socialization

These 2 puppies are remaining from a litter of 13 who were picked up by our Humane Investigators on 5/20. Fosters parents are welcome to foster the puppies in groups of 2 or more, we just don’t want any puppies left behind alone for socialization’s sake. One puppy, Foxglove, does have a small wound on his head. It has been clipped and clean by our clinic, and as of now does not require any further care. Let us know if you would like to foster some of these cuties!

 

BOO-BOO

Age: 2 years

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date: 4/25/2018

Experience Level: Intermediate due to age and size

Boo-Boo is a southern boy who came to us from the south and is slowly warming up to his new Chicago digs. Not really. He’s in the shelter and would much rather be home with you in foster! Boo-Boo is a picky eater and seems to prefer wet food while in our care. He needs to be fostered while we work to treat his heartworm condition during which time we will be working on securing him a rescue transfer partner. Fosters (and eventual rescue partners) will receive full treatment support, even after they take him home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended.

DANIEL

Age: 2 years

Reason for Foster: Heartworm

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date: 3/27/2018

Experience Level: Intermediate due to age and size

Daniel needs to be fostered while we work to treat his heartworm condition and recruit him a forever home. He will become available on our website during his foster period at which point the foster can help us with cross-posting and photos to help with promotion. Fosters (and eventual adopters) will receive full treatment support, even after they take him home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended. A quiet mellow home will be best!

WAFFLES

Age: 1 year

Reason for Foster: Heartworm

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date: 4/18/2018

Experience Level: Novice: Shy and may pull on leash

Waffles is a shy and very sweet hound dog who would benefit from time away from the busy shelter life. He is interested in meeting new people but often times shys away at the last minute. Waffles needs to be fostered while we work to treat his heartworm condition and recruit him a forever home. He will become available on our website during his foster period at which point the foster can help us with cross-posting and photos to help with promotion. Fosters (and eventual adopters) will receive full treatment support, even after they take him home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended. A quiet mellow home will be best!

BRANDI

Age: 2 years

Reason for Foster: Heartworm

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date: 4/9/2018

Experience Level: Intermediate due to training and socialization needs, nervous and shy in new situations

Brandy is a sweet lady who has been nervous since coming to the Society. She would do great in a quiet neighborhood, away from the bustle of her current one. She will need some help gaining confidence in new places and circumstances through patience and counter conditioning. Brandy needs to be fostered while we work to treat her heartworm condition and recruit her a forever home. She will become available on our website during her foster period at which point the foster can help us with cross-posting and photos to help with promotion. Fosters (and eventual adopters) will receive full treatment support, even after they take her home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended.

MILLI

Age: 6 years old

Reason for foster: Heartworm (+)

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date: 12/17/2017

Experience Level: Intermediate due to leash pulling

Milli is an adult dog full of happiness and energy! She often has big open-mouth smile and a bouncy walk. When she was in her last foster, her foster mom said: “Milli is just over the moon whenever she sees me come home – her hobbies include licking people she likes, being brushed, and initiating play time. She seems to be more motivated by petting and praise than by food!” Milli is currently undergoing treatment for heartworm – her adopters would give her a monthly pill and lots of rest over the next 3-6 months! While she is in treatment, she needs to avoid cardio, (like running, tug, and intense dog play). As an energetic dog, she will want longer walks and increased exercise after she recovers. She came to the shelter when her owner could no longer care for her. She grew up with younger children and dogs, and would be a suitable choice for adopters with children or other dogs. She seems to be housetrained and crate trained.

Milli was surrendered because their owners could no longer afford them. Milli needs to be fostered while we work to treat her heartworm condition and recruit her a forever home. She is currently available for adoption so her foster will need to help us in promoting her on social media and by taking photos and sending them our way for weekly updates. Adopters will receive full treatment support, even after they take her home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended.

LUCKY

  Age: 8 months

Reason for foster: Heartworm (+)

Length of Stay: 6-8 weeks

Arrival Date:

We don’t have much information on Lucky as he came off of a transport from Mississippi. We do know that he is a goof, loves people and  would like to recover from heartworm in a home environment! Lucky needs to be fostered while we work to treat his heartworm condition and recruit him a forever home. Once he is in foster for 2 weeks he will become available on our website and we will begin promoting him for adoption. Adopters will receive full treatment support, even after they take him home, until the heartworm is completely cured. Dogs who go out to foster for heartworm treatment should not have lots of activity and bed rest is recommended.

Age: 7 weeks

Experience Level: Intermediate due to application of eye meds

This sweet orange tabby came in to the Society as a stray in bad shape and is now on his road to recovery. He is currently sick with a URI which has given him an eye infection for which the foster will need to medicate using a prescribed eye salve. Kublai Kahn will need 3-4 weeks of foster to resolve the URI, at which point he can come back in for adoption.

Maui – Thank you Jeff!

 

Age: 1y 2m

Reason for foster: Behavior Treatment

Behavior Treatment: prone to overarousal/jumpy/playbitey/mouthy. Needs to decompress in a normalized foster home environment.
