Our Courtesy listing program has been designed to provide your pet the opportunity to find a new home without taking him or her to a shelter. The main requirement is that you are able to keep the pet in your home while we help you search for a new home.
The fee for the Courtesy flyer program is $10.00 for 3 months. This donation helps to support our adoption program. Courtesy Listing Program Process First, please create a flyer (sample flyer)
Be sure to include on the flyer program:
Good quality head (showing a full face) and body shot. A jpg. 4 x 6, 100 dpi is preferred.
A write up about the animal stating the age, sex, spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, weight, personality traits and type of home that would be best for your animal. A name and contact number or email on the flyer.
We suggest you never give a pet away for free. You can charge and collect an amount that you feel is appropriate or ask the new adopter to make a donation to Chicago Pet Rescue. As a frame of reference, we recommend charging $100 for adult dogs and $50 for adult cats. You want to make sure your animal is going to a home where the pet will be well cared for and the family can afford to take care of it.
