Free Dogs in Illinois

Free Dogs | Illinois

Pets are a great addition to your family, and can add as much to your life as you can to theirs. Studies repeatedly show that pet owners are generally happier, live longer, and experience less stress and anxiety than those without a pet. Before purchasing a dog who has been bred in inhumane conditions and solely for profit, be sure to check out dogs for adoption in Illinois. Unfortunately, many shelters are overrun with puppies and dogs whose owners were not prepared for the responsibility of pet care. Many come from families who did not have the patience to provide their new furry family member with the care and training they needed to thrive in their new homes.

Before undertaking the responsibility of a new dog, be sure to check with the The Anti-Cruelty Society, Illinois SPCA, for tips on taking home and caring for your new friend. Then stick around to look through the pets searching for a new family to call their own. The Illinois Humane Society also offers information for expecting and new pet parents, dogs up for adoption, events for pet owners to gather together and information on education, volunteering and activism.

Also consider adopting your new pet from an Illinois dog rescue. These sites take in dogs from dangerous conditions, as well as shelters that euthanize pets that have been turned over to their care.

Becoming a dog owner has its rewards, and learning to care for your new pet properly will make the transition smoother for both you and your new friend. By adopting your new pet from a shelter or rescue, you change not only your life, but theirs as well.
