Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

Any Breed. Any Size. Any Age. Any Reason.


BREED:  Shepherd Mix
AGE: 9 years young
SEX: Male
BIO: Hi, my name is Spencer. I am a very sweet 9 year young Shepherd mix who was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control by the only family I had known. CACC can be a very scary and stressful place but I didn’t lose my sweet and kind disposition. My foster family is happy to report that I have been a PERFECT houseguest and I have definitely enjoyed being spoiled by them. I spend my days lounging on the couch, watching TV and snoozing while my foster parents are at work. They think I deserve to be an only dog so I can continue to be the center of attention for my new person or family. I have been told I am the total package!
Don’t let my age fool you! I am in good health and have plenty of good years ahead of me!
XOXOXO- Spencer

Start The Adoption Process Today

Begin by filling out an adoption application and we start pairing you with your perfect pooch!


Chicagoland Dog Rescue Dogs

Our trained volunteers will determine which home among all applicants is the best fit for the dog, and the dog will be brought back to complete the adoption paperwork.  Our adoption fee is $250 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $300 for puppies.  The fee covers the cost of all medical care including all legally required inoculations, a fecal test and deworming (if required), spaying or neutering, and a microchip. Lifetime training is also included.


All our dogs have all legally required preventative inoculations, are microchipped and are spayed or neutered to control the repetitive birth cycle that produces more unwanted dogs. Most have been rescued from kill shelters in the Midwest, so their exact breed and age is often unknown. All dogs have been medically or emotionally rehabilitated as needed and are temperament tested to assess their fit with other dogs, cats and children.

Chicagoland Dog Rescue reserves the right to restrict adoption of a dog to potential adopters who live within a fifty (50) mile radius of Schaumburg, IL

Weekly socialization and basic obedience training is offered to all adopters FREE OF CHARGE for the lifetime of the dog, something no other group offers!  Training is crucial for happy dogs and ensures that our adopted dogs remain in their happy households forever.  A minimum of 4 training sessions is required for all adopted dogs.

Details on our training program can be found here.
