K9 4 KEEPS dogs are up to date on all vaccinations and are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped by the time an adoption is finalized. (Puppies may not have their entire set of shots.)

Since it’s our desire that you adopt a pet who can enjoy a lifetime of love with you, we take special measures to ensure that your potential future pet is the best match for you and your family. We have set up the following procedures for anyone wishing to foster and/or adopt one of our dogs:
    To be considered for fostering and/or adopting a K9 4 KEEPS dog, you must:
  • be at least 21 years of age
  • have a form of photo identification (license or state ID) that shows your current address
  • live within 60 miles of Chicago (or have made special arrangements with K9 4 KEEPS to adopt a dog into a home outside
    this 60-mile radius)
  • be able to show proof that you are allowed to have a pet of the breed and size you wish to adopt in the place where you
    currently live
  • be able to spend the time and resources necessary to provide the training, medical treatment and proper care for your pet
