DuPage County Pugs - Every 3rd Saturday
DuPage County Pugs group meets at the A.D.O.P.T. Shelter ...
The majority of our animals enter our facility through shelter transfers. We rescue animals from local animal controls when their required stray holding period has ended & they have not been reclaimed. We are not licensed by the State of Illinois to take in stray animals. They must be surrendered to your local animal control.
We also take a small percentage of owner surrenders. Owners who wish to surrender their pet may either (a) call the shelter and complete an "Animal Intake Request" form over the phone or (b) complete an "Animal Intake Request" form on-line, save it, & email it as attachment to email@example.com along with a picture of your pet. Our Intake Committee reviews all owner surrender requests to determine whether or not the animal is suitable for our adoption program. If appropriate, an appointment will be arranged to assess the animal medically and behaviorally at which time a determination will be made on whether or not to accept the animal.
We do not accept any walk-in surrenders. Animals abandoned on our property are turned over to animal control as required by law.
