Arlo

Arlo is a very special boy. He was brought in as a stray - wound covered, skeletal and starving. He loves everyone he meets.. human and dog! Arlo loves to nap.. he is low energy and ready to be your couch pal. He is food motivated, which is great because this boy needs helps with his manners but we know he can do it! He enjoys chewing on antlers and playing with rope toys in his downtime.  We recommend that Arlo be placed into a home with kids over the age of 10. We promised him we'd get him well and find him a perfect forever home - is that you? Fill out an application and get the ball rolling so you can meet this lover!

Zeus - Adoption Pending

We made a desperate plea for a foster to come forward for a senior tripod, his owner died and he ended up at an area shelter. We have a soft spot for distinguished gentlemen like him so we started moving mountains to get him out. The outpouring of love and support we received to make this happen has been overwhelming and humbling. We are so grateful! Between the great staff at Whitley County Humane Society Animal Shelter, Debbie Marie & Joe transporting, Anne Aalbue letting him crash for a bit after a long ride, and a foster family who has a special place in their hearts for tripods opening their home we are proud to announce the newest member to the CTP family...Zeus! All good things to come. More info to come once he settles in at his foster home.

Toby - Adoption Pending

Toby is a diamond in the rough! This handsome boy is about 1.5 years old, 55 pounds and still has puppy tendencies. His foster family says he is confident and self assured but he needs some training and guidance to polish up his edges. Toby is a leash superstar and we don't see that very often out of the gate. He is crate trained and comfortable in it, he is also potty trained and he knows sit, down and touch but he needs help to learn his other basic commands as well as given direction with mouthiness and jumping. He is high energy and always on the move! He loves to play fetch and tug and he's into antlers and soft treats. Do you have the energy to keep up with this boy?

Jax

Jax is a 50lb charmer! At just one year old, he is still learning about the world and could use some patience and guidance to be the best! He has a head start on his manners. He knows sit, down, stay, high five, paw, touch and he's house trained. He is working on the other manners and he's treat motivated so it makes it easier! He is still young and has high energy so he jumps on people. His foster family is working with him on that. He is dog friendly but hasn't been tested with cats. He loves to play with rope toys and enjoys finding treats hidden in boxes. He also enjoys chewing on Nylabones. He'd like to request a home that has cheese and apples but no homes with vacuum cleaners (ok, we told him that was unlikely so maybe he can hang outside when you vacuum - he hates them!). Jax and his one ear up, one ear down self would love to meet you!

Goose

Goose is looking for his wing man! He says 'play fetch with me or lose me forever!' Goose is a gorgeous 2 to 3 year old Top Gun that falls into the pocket pittie category because he's only 45 lbs. All the joy of a pittie in a fun size! Goose is good with older kids, and dog friendly if he is given a slow introduction. His foster family says he's mostly good on leash but can get a bit vocal when he sees other dogs. They have been working on his manners, crate training (he isn't a fan) and clicker training. Goose loves a good game of fetch (he'll even place the toy in your lap - he's so helpful) and he isn't picky about toys. He loves plush and balls! He isn't what we'd call a big snuggle butt but he'll take some butt scratches if you've got them. He is also into whipped cream so make sure you've got a Dunkin' Donuts nearby. In a pinch he'll accept peanut butter and spray cheese too. He isn't unreasonable! Goose has requested a home with no vacuum cleaners. (look, we know that isn't likely but he only had this one request.. just maybe vacuum while he's playing fetch with someone else.) Are you the Maverick that Goose is looking for? If so, fill out an application to meet this boy. He'll take your breath away!

Mudflaps

Mudflaps, or Muddy as we call her, was 1 of 5 dogs confiscated by the police during a cruelty investigation. Her owner was charged with animal cruelty for keeping the dogs in cramped cages in disgusting conditions. Muddy is about 4 years old and 42 lbs...she is a pocket pittie! The age she is at means she's over the puppy shenanigans but she does need a patient owner to help her firm up her manners. She knows sit, stay, leave it, come, is housebroken, and enjoys playing tug & shaking toys. Muddy had and has a few medical issues and we are getting her sorted out from her past neglect. Muddy has some apprehension with some men but is usually ok after introductions and she isn't a fan of getting her butt scratched but there are plenty of other places to scratch while she is cuddling with you in bed! Muddy is a chill dog and happy to do whatever you want. She just wants to be with you. Muddy would really like a home that has duck jerky, strawberries and chicken broth for her kibble 😉

Roseanne

Roseanne is all that and a bag of chips! She’s a bit of a little rider, super sweet, and just a smidge of adorable chunkiness! Roseanne was confiscated by Chicago police when they were responding to a domestic violence call and saw the absolute filthy conditions the dogs were living in. Shortly after her confiscation she became part of the Safe Humane Chicago program. She completely won us over with her charm, sloppy kisses, and desire to be as close to you as possible. Rosie is 3 years old and mid-sized at 65 lbs. She isn't a pocket pit but she isn't one of the larger ones either! She's just right! Rosie is high energy so she needs a family that can make sure she gets in her exercise. Rosie isn't the best on a leash so she needs a family that can work with her on that. She is cautious when meeting new people and should have slow intros to new dogs but she loves her foster dog brother and wants to play with him all the time so she will probably enjoy having a home with a dog friend. She's only really seen feral cats so we aren't sure how she'd be with a cat in the home. She loves kids and has been a good girl around them. Rosie gets a little mouthy when playing so she'll need to be taught some manners. She knows sit, down, stay, come, touch and she's potty trained. She does ok in her crate. She likes to have her butt and side scratched and she'd like to request some air conditioning vents she can lay on in her new home. (it's ok if you don't have them.. she hogs them anyway but it was a request she had.) Are you ready for a gorgeous bundle of energy and love? Fill out an application and see if Rosie is right for you!

Cashmere

When we took in Pajamas we knew he came in with Cashmere, and of course in a perfect world we’d be able to take her as well but we didn’t have an open foster home. Then we got a call from Safe Humane Chicago informing us she was pregnant so we kicked it into high gear and in no time had a foster step forward that has always dreamed of fostering a mama and welping a litter. Cashmere’s puppies are all with their new families and so it’s time for the best mama in the world to find her new family. She loves nothing more then to be close to her people, cuddle, play with toys, and go for long walks. Cashmere can be reactive on leash when seeing other dogs so she’ll need slower introductions to dogs in the home, but she’s totally worth it. If you are looking for the total package, Cashmere is the girl for you.

Pajamas

Pajamas is all about butt wiggles, tail wags, snuggles, and kisses! He’s an absolute sweetheart! Pajamas was confiscated by Chicago police because his owner was a felon who was not allowed to have unfixed/unmicrochipped dogs and refused to have pajamas neutered. Shortly after being confiscated he became part of the Safe Humane Chicago program. Once we met him we knew he had to be a CTP pup. Please welcome the newest member to the CTP family… Pajamas! All good things from here. More info to come as he settles in at his foster home.

Cody

Cody was surrendered to an area animal control because his owners didn’t have time for him anymore. After spending all his life with them, his world was rocked. He became depressed, very stressed, and was deteriorating quickly in the shelter environment. After a brief stint in the shelter, he was freed and is now enjoying the good life with his foster family. At 4 years old and 81.5 pounds this Caine Corso mix is out of the puppy stage, but still will need some patience and guidance as he is learning some manners. He is very sweet and affectionate and loves being very, very close to his people and wants to please them. He is a total bed and couch hog and will follow you around the house wherever you go including the bathroom! He has brief moments of energy (post poop zoomies), but calms down nicely after a few minutes. Cody loves snuggling, peanut butter, bully sticks, his big Kong tennis ball, short walks around the block, car rides where he can hang his head out the window, petting and belly rubs, playing with his foster sister and giving his foster cat friends a good chase around the house. He knows sit, stay and down, but does not like to give his paw. He still unsure of being outside and prefers not to be alone in the backyard and his walks kept short. He is extremely treat and food motivated especially when searching for treats in his snuffle mat. There isn’t a treat he hasn’t had that he doesn’t love. He does not like to be confined in a room or crate and would prefer a house where he has total freedom where he can sleep the day away under a nice ceiling fan or curled up on the couch or even the floor.

Mitch

While we were at an area animal control a love connection happened...we didn’t expect to fall so hard, but we did. This beautiful senior soul was surrendered when unfortunate circumstances caused his owner to lose his home. The poor man wanted what was best for his 14 year old beloved dog, but had no where to turn to. When AC medical was doing his intake exam they discovered he had a 6/6 grade heart murmur, this is a death sentence for most dogs so we knew we had to get him out of there as soon as possible. A huge hearted foster stepped up for him, knowing very well that he’s probably a hospice case.
During his visit/exam with our veterinarian the 6/6 grade heart murmur was confirmed and he’ll need to be on Vetmedin for the rest of his life. This is a prescription medication used in dogs to increase the ability of the heart to pump blood. He’ll also need 2 types of daily eye drops, weekly sensitive skin baths, and senior soft kidney Rx  food for easy digestion. He may be a Chinese Crested but he’s our honorary Pitbull!

Brody

One of our fosters got word about a senior yorkie who was being severely mistreated and neglected, she reached out to us to see if we knew anyone who could help or take him. We told her, “Let’s find him a foster, CTP will take him”. Within a matter of minutes we had a few gracious souls step up to foster this deserving boy. When he was picked up the sight was worse then we imagined; he was completely matted and his paw was stuck to his face tangled in a mat. That mat was able to be cut to free his foot but the rest were so bad he needed to be shaved down. Brody is dog and cat friendly, and thinks everyone he sees is there to meet him. He knows sit, down, paw, and rollover and loves to show off his skills. Brody can be bribed to do anything for a strawberry...they are his obsession. If you are looking for a pint sized shadow with tons of love to give, Brody is your boy.

Benny

It’s no secret that Benny has been my heart & soul and that we’ve been working tirelessly trying to bust him out. This angel has had a rough road since being picked up as a stray; he was emaciated, practically bald, so sick that he had to have IVs and nebulizer treatments, wasn’t eating, and put on the urgent list. I checked on him regularly, and each time kissing his smooshy face promising him he’d be leaving with me. Then a foster couple who has a soft spot for special needs and medical cases asked to meet him, they were not disappointed and he won them over! I’m not sure exactly what sealed the deal...was it the dinosaur looking feet, his seal like baldness, squishy pink face, quirky gate, umbilical hernia, or the inability to not smile in his presence. Whatever it is, I’m eternally grateful. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Benny! All good things from here. More info as he settles in at his foster home.

Otis

We were notified by another rescue about a meatball at an rural animal control who needed out urgently. After seeing his pictures, handling and leash tests, we reached out to a couple fosters who were available and had a special place in their heart for blockheads. One of them said she’d love to meet him, so her and our interaction team made the trek to the middle of no where to meet & evaluate him. Needless to say it was love at first sight and made getting stuck behind a tractor well worth it. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Otis! All good things from here. More info to come as he settles in at his foster home.

Robinhood - Adoption Pending

Robinhood’s story is one of abuse and neglect, one that brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it. Thank goodness there are still Good Samaritans our there that spoke up when they saw something wrong, if not for them, and all the people who came to Robinhood’s aide there’s no telling what would have happened to this sweet sassy redhead. It’s worth the couple minutes to read his story in the post. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Robinhood.

Tinkerbell

A terrified, emaciated dog was found covered in feces and urine locked in a bathroom with another dog that was in a crate. Unfortunately the other dog was deceased, and had been for some time. Think about that for a minute. Canine or human, that makes for a traumatizing experience. That surviving dog became part of Safe Humane Chicago. Upon intake she was skeletal, coughing, sneezing, blood dripping from her nose, and absolutely shut down. Once she started to receive medical care and feel a bit better she let glimpses of herself be seen. We saw a girl who got dealt a sh*t hand and needed patience, love, and time to truly heal emotionally and physically. But we weren’t the only ones...a huge hearted foster saw her story and stepped up to help make this happen. Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Tinkerbell! All good things from here. More info to come as she heals and settles in at her foster home.

John Doe {JD}

It’s not typical that we take in owner surrenders, we pride ourselves on helping out the Chicago area animal controls since there is an abundance of dogs in need within our community. But once in a while a dog comes along that gets us in the feels and we can’t say no. A Good Samaritan (who also happens to be a well seasoned foster mom) found a stray on the south side. She immediately canvased the neighborhood searching for his owner, took him to the vet to check for a microchip (which they found), she contacted the listed owner multiple times to no avail, and then she took him home. Once home she posted him on Lost Dogs Illinois, made posters, and blew up social media still searching for his owners. No avail. Then she reached out to the rescue she fostered for and offered to foster him if they took him under their wing. No avail. That’s when a life long friend of mine connected her to me in hopes of some help. We quickly got all the info, and set up our interactions team to meet and evaluate this poor boy...He was amazing and didn’t disappoint. We are proud to announce the newest member of the CTP family...John Doe! All good things from here. More info to come as he settles in.

Abel

Abel has had quite the travel schedule over the past couple months, and not by his own choosing. He was initially found as a stray and brought to a Chicago facility in July where his perfection quickly landed him on the adoption floor. Then in early August he was adopted by a couple who found out a few days later their association didn’t allow bully breeds so they surrendered him to another area animal control. And that’s where we met him and fell head over heels for this sweet melon headed boy. Who knows which is bigger...his head or his heart. This stunning guy needed to catch a break and land in one place where he could settle in and not lead the life of a drifter. That’s when a family graciously stepped up to foster him and give him the needed stabily.
Please help us welcome the newest member of the CTP family...Abel! All good things from here. More info as he settles in at his foster home.

Sheldon

A couple weeks ago with the help of Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program - CRISP we took a 8 week old parvo puppy named Lady. Unfortunately she passed away, it’s a brutal disease, and she gave one hell of a fight. We wanted to pay it forward in Lady’s honor, and just as it should be, the stars aligned... a Good Samaritan contacted us about a puppy she rescued that needed a foster home ASAP and at that moment we knew this was it. The very same foster who immediately said yes to taking in little Lady selflessly said yes to this teeny boy, and hopped in her car to go get him. This little nugget is a smidge over 6 weeks old and all boy already! More info as he settles in at his foster home.
