Adopt-A-Dog program

Our Mascot, Skates, and the Wolves have teamed up to help find loving families for dogs. Over 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. 

During the season, dog adoptions can be found in the South Lobby at Wolves Adopt-A-Dog games.  Be a hero and save a sidekick!

It’s easy to adopt a dog! Everything is handled with care during the adoption process.

During these times where we are unable to hold Adopt-A-Dog games, you can still be a hero and save a sidekick! Adopt these loving pups today!

Adopt these dogs FROM South Suburban Humane Society today!




Excuse me there! Are you looking for a playful cuddle bug that enjoys to wear sweaters? If so, let me introduce myself! My name is Lenny and and I am quite the lover! I am a handsome 6 year-old looking for my forever family. While I LOVE people, I would love to be the only furry friend in your home. I love to play and am very smart. I am a staff favorite and known for my charm. I’m just as happy to go for a long walk on a trail as I am to cuddle up with you on the couch. I am even good when they give me baths. A foster or adopter with who has experience with large dogs would be a plus too! Despite what her name might imply, Chilly is happy to help keep you warm during the cold, winter months. This gorgeous husky mix isn’t just pretty, she is super smart too! Chilly loves to play but is more than happy to curl up on the couch with you. Typical to Husky nature, she would be best in a home without small animals, but loves people and other dogs her size. Don’t get left out in the cold, come meet Chilly today!  Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and who better to spend it with than Valentina! Val would be best as an only pet so she can be queen of the castle but loves humans. She is super food motivated which means it will be even easier to train her! Valentina is quite active but is a sucker for quality rubs. Whether it’s going for a run, or Netflix and chill, Valentina is your girl!

Adopt these dogs from Cicero Waggin’ Tails Animal Shelter today!

11 month old, 55lbs, femaleThe owner signed her over because they didn’t have time to train her, but she has learned a lot already from the Waggin’ Tails staff by simply being rewarded with treats. She has a lot of puppy energy, though, and would do best in a home that has a fenced in yard for her to run around in. Kids and other pets would be great for her as well. She does like to play a lot, so the other dogs would need to tolerate her puppy behavior.
4 Years Old, 80lbs, maleHe’s very playful and acts like a puppy even though he’s older. He’s welcome to meeting new dog friends, but doesn’t like cats. Because of his puppy attitude, he would do best with older kids that he couldn’t accidentally knock over. He’s a lovable dog that just wants to be as close as possible to people. Literally, he will sit on your feet or in your lap for attention.
1 1/2 Years Old, 50lbs, male
He absolutely loves to play with toys and kids, but doesn’t care much for other dogs or cats so he needs to be the only pet in the home. He’s a very affectionate dog and will make a great family pet.

Interested? Contact Samantha at (708) 298-2374 (call or text) or email CiceroShelter@gmail.com

Please include the dog’s name as the subject line or in the text to get an application and arrange an adoption appointment.
