Adopt - Back


Adoption Donation

When you adopt a dog, you're not buying a pet. Your donation isn't a fee for your adoptee - it's a gift that helps us pursue our mission, save lives, and ensure we can provide care to all the dogs in our program.


  • Senior dog. 8 years and up / $125

  • Adult or Young Dog. 6 months to 7 years / $375

  • Puppies. Under 6 months / $450


Adoption Requirements

  • Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border

  • Be at least 21 years of age 

  • Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household

  • Have approval from owner of the residence  (written in lease)

  • Have a valid ID with current address

  • Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation
