TAILS sets suburban adoption events

Published: Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

TAILS Humane Society in DeKalb has teamed up with Petco for a pair of mega-adoption events featuring more than 100 adoptable dogs and puppies of all breeds. Dogs and puppies will be available for adoption from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 19 and Oct. 20 at the Petco stores at 199 Illinois Route 83 in Elmhurst and at 49 W. Rand Road in Arlington Heights.

Through funding provided by Petco Foundation, adoption fees will be deeply discounted for this event. Adult dog adoptions will be $75 and puppies younger than 6 months will be $200 plus a $75 obedience class deposit. All dogs and puppies will be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and dewormings, and microchipped, and all adoptions will include a free vet exam at a participating veterinary clinic and one month of free pet health insurance.

According to Beth Drake, executive director of TAILS, most of these dogs and puppies will come from TAILS’ partner animal shelters in Oklahoma. The animals have been cared for in TAILS foster homes prior to the event.
