There are two ways to adopt from Wright-Way Rescue.
1. Visit our Adoption Center
One of the ways you can adopt a pet from our shelter is by visiting our North Shore Humane Center (Northern IL) or Admissions and Medical Services Campus (Southern IL) during open hours.
2. Reserve A Pet In Advance
Wright-Way Rescue is unique to many shelters because of it’s ability to hold pets for pre-approved adopters who make arrangements to meet them. Approved applicants who are seriously interested in a particular animal may place them on reserve to meet once they become ready for adoption.There is NO FEE to place a reservation. We do however ask that the potential adopter is serious about meeting this particular pet. If we hold a pet and the person does not show up, that pet may have missed its chance to find a family during the time it was on reserve.
If you are interested in adopting two pets, there is a $50 fee to reserve a second animal. This fee applies toward the second adoption fee of either the dog or cat. If the adopter does not adopt (or only adopts one pet) this fee is maintained by our shelter as a donation.
On our website, each animal will have an availability date listed under its description. If they do not, you may call us for an estimated arrival day to our Morton Grove facility. This is the date this pet will most likely be ready for a new home. Prior to this time the pets are housed at the Wright-Way Rescue Admissions and Medical Services Campus where they begin to receive necessary medical care prior to adoption.
Please remember that we take only one reservation per pet. Please only set up an appointment if you know you can attend your time, are seriously interested in the pet you are asking us to hold, and please ensure you are ready to add a pet to your home.
