ISDF tries to find forever homes for all our dogs prior to bringing them to the US. however, sometimes the urgent needs of some of these animals demands immediate action. All dogs listed below are currently available for adoption below and can be seen by appointment, or at one of our upcoming adoptions events. All dogs listed below are currently in the Chicago area unless noted otherwise. You can also find their listings on Petfinder.

Our mission at International Street Dog Foundation is to place dogs into permanent homes where they will be happy and well cared for, for the rest of their lives. We hope to help each prospective adopter to find an appropriate pet for the family and home. To ensure this please tell your adoption counselor about special issues or concerns that should be taken into account. Thank you.
