... Creating Families,
            4 Paws At A Time

Every day innocent pets are left homeless and abandoned in Chicagoland. Adopt-A-Pet has found loving homes for over 15,000 of those cats and dogs.

If you are looking for a family pet, consider adopting a wonderful pet from Adopt-A-Pet. Most of our cats and dogs are kept in foster homes, where they live as part of a family. Not only is this beneficial for the animal, but it also helps us create a purrfect match between an animal and a prospective adopter.

Unlike many organizations, we only ask for your help once a year. Remember, this is our only big fundraiser, so please make sure to buy as many tickets as possible, and sell them to friends and family, too. The animals are depending on you more than ever. Please don’t let them down! EVERY TICKET SOLD REALLY HELPS, AND EVERY CENT GOES TO THE ANIMALS!

You may print out as many raffle tickets as you need from this PDF and print out the return stub here.

There’s lots of great prizes. And as we always say, even though everyone might not win a raffle prize, everyone does win something of greater value: The satisfaction of knowing that you helped save a little life!

Drawing has been extended to April 16, 2014.

Unconditional Love

Can you offer temporary space and a little TLC to a dog, cat, puppy or kitten awaiting its permanent home?

Adopt-A-Pet seeks interim foster care for orphaned pets, many urgently needing rescue from death row at high-kill pounds.  

Medical expenses are fully paid.
Food and supplies provided.
A close match to your preference is attempted.

Sadly, the number we can assist is limited to the availability of foster people willing to open their hearts and their homes.

Your help can literally save a precious life!
