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, presented by Premier Veterinary Group, Chicagoland’s 24-hour emergency and specialty hospitals. 

We will host one Adopt-A-Dog Night each month during the 2021-22 regular season as Waggin’ Tails Animal Shelter in Cicero, South Suburban Humane Society and PAWS Chicago will bring beautiful dogs that deserve a forever home!

Meet these wonderful pups in Allstate Arena’s South Lobby on these dates (click the link to find tickets):

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

Sophie is a 1 1/2 year old pit bull that is the longest resident at the Homewood Adoption Center! She is so very social and loves all people! Her favorite thing in the entire world is a comfy blanket though! She does need to be the only pet in the household but she has more than enough love to give.


Payton is a sweet 6 year old beagle/lab mix who was brought into SSHS because she is blind and the young children in the home were scaring her. Her previous family thought a more calm home would be best for her special needs. Payton is in a foster home!

Frenchie says: Big boys, big boys, what you gonna do?
Well you can definitely love all on me! I’m an outgoing big boy waiting patiently to sweep someone off their feet. I enjoy playing with friends my size and going for walks. I also love giving kisses, going on car rides, and having my neck scratched. I am a senior guy ready to go home for the holidays!



This young pup is looking for a patient home to be active in.

Coal is super cool and laid back once he has settled in. He loves everyone he meets and to play. Coal is in a volunteer foster home!

They say “Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.”
You sure would be blessed to have me! Even though I must be the only pet, I have tons of love to give. I love going for walks and for your benefit, I walk pretty great. I love to snuggle! Literally LOVE it. I snuggle with the staff here and even with the cozy pillows. I take a lot of naps but I mean who wouldn’t?! Stop by HAC and come cuddle with me 🙂 Don’t let me age fool you, I may be 8 years old but I still have so much life and love left to give!


“Yo, listen up here’s a story
About a little guy
That lives in a blue world”

I sure would like to go into a home where I can run free and be active. I enjoy the company of other dogs as long as we have the same play style. I can be what they say is a little too “ruff”. I still need some training, since I’m still a young guy at just a year old, but am super eager to learn. Treats are a great tool!

Southern girls are sunshine mixed with a little hurricane. My name is Holly and I came all the way from Texas to find my forever home.
I am not too fond of cats and I would like to meet other dog friends prior to going home. I am super sweet and love attention and affection. Come on by and maybe we can share a slice of Apple Pie 🙂


Meet Daphne! Daphne is a beautiful girl looking for a home where she can get lots of love from people! She can be a little shy when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly. She loves going for walks and lying in the grass. She’ll roll over and allow you to give her bellyrubs! She’s very food-motivated, which will help her learn a lot of new tricks! She would do best as the only pet in the household, but the more people the merrier! She would also prefer all of the humans in the house be adults as well!


This is Hurkie, and he is one good-looking pup! He was living with a foster family who described him as loving, playful, sweet, and curious! He loves to snuggle, go on walks, and play. He likes chew toys, fetch, tug-of-war, and being chased around a yard. Most of all, he likes being with people! The closer the better, so expect him to snuggle up close to you! We would prefer he be your one and only pet in the household!


The Queen Bee, as we call her, has been “crowned” a staff and volunteer favorite — and with good reason! From her adorable kangaroo hops she greets you with from behind her kennel gate, to her super sweet personality, it’s impossible not to love this girl! She is a 3-year-old pitbull mix who must be the “queen of the castle” in a home with no other pets. But trust us, you won’t need anyone else once you have her in your home!
