Every week Patch shares pets waiting for homes at area shelters and rescue groups.

Every week we bring you pets looking for homes at area rescue groups. This week the pets are from DuPage County Animal Care and Control

DuPage County Animal Care and Control 


Blackie came to DuPage County Animal Care and Control as an owner give up. He is a 12-year-old neutered male, He is vaccinated, microchipped and ready to find a home to spend his golden years. Blackie loves to be pet and especially enjoys belly rubs. He gets along with cats and enjoys playing with other dogs. There are many advantages to owning a low rider pooch…..you never have to worry about them stealing food off the counters and you have a great floor mop! Due to age, Blackie’s adoption fee is only $50. If Blackie sounds like the dog for you, stroll on over to the shelter today and be prepared to give a belly rub!

Hershey and Nestle

Guinea pigs Hershey and Nestle arrived at DuPage County Animal Care and Control because their owner gave them up because they got a puppy. These little girls are only a year old. They are sweet as their names and chirp in delight when held. Since they love people, these girls would make great starter pets and are perfect for children. Come in a meet these girls today. Ask the staff for some lettuce and watch the girls chirp and dance!
