How to Adopt
Reserve A Pet In Advance
Wright-Way Rescue is unique to many shelters because of its 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.
Make your reservation by calling our Adoption Hotline Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (847) 728-5434 Option 2 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

40,000 Pets Saved

4,155 Adoption in 2018
Last year, our organization did 4,155 adoptions. As a no-kill rescue, pets remain adoptable as long as necessary, and are never euthanized for space reasons.
Critical Care Center
Wright-Way Rescue is one of only a few shelters in the nation with a separate medical facility that is dedicated to saving the lives of pets with highly contagious but treatable medical conditions. Instead of turning away pets with illness, we welcome them and provide quality medical care.
In the month of July, Wright-Way Rescue saved 334 dogs and cats from animal control facilities and owner surrenders.
97% Save Rate
Wright-Way Rescue boasts a save rate of over 97% in 2018. Our adoption rate is consistently 3-4 times above the national average and is one of the highest in the nation.
36,400 Miles a Year
Volunteers travel 700 miles weekly, adding up to 676 hours and over 36,400 miles a year, to safely bring adoptable pets to the Chicagoland area from southern Illinois.
