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.

Wait until you get your “hanes” on this guy! Hanes is a social butterfly looking for a family to enjoy his confidence. He is also extremely handsome and friendly. He loves to say hello to everyone and so far, he may even enjoy the company of another fur friend. He is a roughly 3-year-old pit bull, located at our Homewood Adoption Center, ready to meet you!!

Refried Beans

2-year-old Pit mix. Our Beans is a staff favorite, who has been here for quite a while.

He has lived with a cat in the past and done very well and lived with older children!

He is full of love and would benefit greatly from a family willing to train him because he loves to learn. He has so much potential, and a huge heart to offer.


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.
