Adopt a Dog

Dog and cat adoptions are the cornerstone of our mission and services. Since 1979, we have been sheltering animals and placing them into loving homes; however, our work is still not done. There are thousands of animals in shelters waiting for homes across the Chicagoland area. We hope you will take some time to learn more about our adoption process and meet the pets currently available for adoption at the Naperville Area Humane Society.

Dog Adoption Process

1. Visit the Naperville Area Humane Society during open hours to see if there is a dog you would like to meet. 

2. Complete our brief Pets and People profile and discuss it with an adoption counselor to determine if the dog is a good fit for your family.

3. Interact with the dog.

4. If you are still interested in the dog after the interaction, the adoption counselor will lead you through the next steps in the process.

*Adopters must be at least 21 years of age and provide a valid driver's license or state ID. 

*Renters must provide proof that the pet they are interested in is allowed at the residence before an adoption can be approved.

Bear is the most amazing dog! The first night he checked the house to make sure everything was as it should be and came up to bed. I couldn’t tell him no when he crawled under my covers and laid his head on a pillow. At about 3:00 am he got up and checked on my daughter and then came back to bed. He loves to cuddle!
