Status: Available

*Potential Adopters: Please note that at this time we can only consider adoption to individuals who have been fully vaccinated against the COVID virus and are willing to offer a vaccination record. It is an essential part of our adoption process that we complete a comprehensive interview, observe the home environment and dynamic between household members and other pets, and thoroughly survey the home for safety and security. It is mandated that all volunteer staff that conduct these home visits be fully vaccinated, and to protect the health and safety of those volunteers as well as their families, we must require that all potential adopters and household members aged 16 and older be fully vaccinated. This is the only way that we will be able to open adoptions again which, until this point have been closed throughout the pandemic due to safety concerns. We have come to this decision exclusively as a result of our care and concern for the health of our volunteers and of course coupled with our desire to find the best placement for all of our dogs. Also applicants must be within a 2 hour driving distance from Chicago at this time.

Ray Charles is a 10 month old Boston Terrier puppy who was born blind.
His breeder chose to surrender him to rescue. He is fully vaccinated
and microchipped along with being neutered. Ray had his unformed eye
tissue removed to prevent any future injury to the tissue he couldn’t
naturally protect.

Ray’s ideal home would include a resident dog or dogs that would play
with him and be his “eyes”. A buddy that would show him around and be
his companion. A fenced yard to protect him and minimal stairs in the
home and someone who would be home with him during the day.

Ray plays very well with other dogs and is a fun-loving puppy. His
favorite game is tugging. He navigates the home perfectly and can
leap onto and off the couch. He loves to leap up and snuggle with you
there as well as with other dogs. Ray is cautious of stairs and isn’t
confident going down more than one; though he can go up a couple
confidently. He loves to be outside and does well once he knows the
boundaries.

Ray needs to be helped outside to go potty. He does best with a
consistent routine. Ray sleeps in a crate at night and when no one is
home for short periods of time during the day. Ray likes to follow
you around the house and will always be where you are.

Ray rides in the car in a crate and is a very relaxed passenger.

He eats twice daily and will go to his “spot” and wait for his food to
be brought to him.

Ray is so special, he needs a special family to adopt and love him
just the way he is; because Ray sees with his heart and loves his
life.

If you feel you are the ideal forever home for Mr Ray Charles- please complete our online application. He is fully vetted and neutered as well as micro chipped. His adoption fee is $850
