Adopt-A-Dog program

Our Mascot, Skates, and the Wolves continue to work as hard as ever to find loving families for dogs. More than 1,500 dogs have been given new forever homes through Skates’ Sidekicks.

The Wolves will host one Adopt-A-Dog Night each month during the 2022-23 regular season as South Suburban Humane Society and PAWS Chicago will bring beautiful dogs that deserved a forever home!

Be a hero and save a sidekick! It’s easy to adopt a dog! Everything is handled with care during the adoption process.

Dopey is a 1 ½ year old Chicago Dog. He is smart and ready for his forever family! He knows sit stay and speak! Dopey would do best in a home with adults or older children. He has a lot of energy and very playful. He loves to take toys out of the toy box and will play by himself running around and throwing the toys in the air.


Corbin is a 3 ½ year old Chicago Dog. He is a very playful dog that is working on learning basic commands of sit, stay and lay down. His favorite past time is playing fetch!


1 ½ -year-old Pit Mix, Janice loves people.

She would make a great addition to a household with older children.

She prefers to be the only pet in her household.


8 ½-year-old Pit Mix. If you’re looking for a senior pet that’s still got quite a bit of energy, then Joann is your girl! Joann is super sweet and loves attention.

She is an avid face kisser and does love to nibble. She is a big fan of butt scratches and rolling in the grass! Oh, and did we mention she LOVES attention?

Joann will need to go home with no other pets and older children so she can get all the attention for herself!


6-year-old Pit Mix. Bella is looking for a family who will let her carry all her toys around.

She has so much love to give and would prefer to be your only one. Bella is a social butterfly and loves meeting new people. 

She has a great appetite and her favorite snacks are yogurt and burgers!


4-year-old Pit Mix. Sugar is just as sweet as she sounds.

She would make a great addition to the right family! She is super friendly and attention seeking.

If you’re interested in meeting sugar, she’s waiting at our Homewood location.
