Pets of the Week: Max Wants to Play Fetch, Dougie Likes Kids

Every week Glen Ellyn Patch shares information on pets available for adoption at area rescues and shelters.

Each week we bring you two pets looking for homes at area rescue groups. This week the pets are from DuPage County Animal Care and Control. We welcome other animal shelters and rescue groups to contact us to participate in this weekly column. To participate, contact Glen Ellyn Local Editor Mary Ann Lopez


Max came to DuPage County Animal Care and Control because his owner was no longer able to care for him.  His passion in life is to play fetch. He loves to fetch almost anything and can play for hours. Max is great because he also knows how to relax. If you decide that you are done playing, he has no problem just sitting by you. He is a great combination of young and old dog traits. Max gets along great with other dogs and doesn’t mind cats at all. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. His adoption fee is half the normal cost. 


Dougie came to the shelter because the dog in the household was not fond of him. He doesn’t seem to mind other animals and gets along fine with the other cats at the shelter. Dougie was raised with children and does great with them. He is very friendly and loves to play. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Currently, Friends of DuPage County Animal Care and Control is subsidizing all black cat adoption fees and there is zero cost to bring Dougie home!

Adoption fees at DuPage County Animal Care and Control are $100 for dogs or cats, which includes the fee for the pet, the shots, microchip and registration. Other animals are available at the shelter, including rabbits and guinea pigs.

The DuPage County Animal Care and Control is located at 120 N. County Farm Road in Wheaton. The hours of operation are Monday and Thursday 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Contact them by phone at 630-407-2800 or visit online
