ATTN: CAT LOVERS! If you love cats, but want to try a dog, KYA the cat-dog is just what you're looking for!

Kya is a super sweet pup, on her terms. 😬 And like most cross breeds such as this, a little anti-anxiety meds are needed to help mellow out the cat in her.

She enjoys her couch time like any other pup, but like most cats, doesn't always like to be petted. She'll let you know when snuggles are welcome, and when they're not.

She'll share the bed with you, no problem. Typically will fall asleep curled up in the far corner of the bed refusing snuggles and pets (cat like) , but can almost guarantee you'll wake up with her sharing your pillow, ready for belly rubs and face licks (dog like).

She loves to go on long walks, and is great on the leash. She does get a little over excited with people passing, and needs to learn that other dogs on leashes aren't snacks.

She is perfectly content at home alone for either 2 hours or 12 (cat like) probably prefers the time to herself. She's good with people visiting. She loves the car and having her head out the window (dog).

She has been getting more cuddly since being in her foster home, so we think she's slowly becoming a dog again. Although she does live with 3 cats, so its easy to fall back into the cat like behavior.

Kya qualifies for a WAIVED adoption fee and $100 sponsorship for training! If you're a cat lover, don't pass this girl up! We need to get her HOME.

If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website at and fill out an adoption application. An adoption counselor will contact you. Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match.

Please note that adoption counselors will only know of your interest if you submit an application. They do not see emails sent to the administration email account. The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization.

Minimum Adoption Donation is WAIVED (includes deworming, microchip with free registration, age appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter if performed by our vet, 30 days of health insurance). Kya also comes with training sponsorship. Any donation above the minimum is appreciated.

To give them time to grow, we do not spay/neuter young puppies prior to adoption. However, it is required by law for all dogs adopted from IL rescues and shelters to be altered within 30 days of adoption. We must have proof that it is performed in the 30 days. Adopters may use their own vet at their own cost as long as proof of the surgery is provided in 30 days.

If adopting a puppy and you have adult dogs who go to public places, such as dog parks, they can be tracking home virus' to your puppy. Not only should the puppy be kept home from dog parks, pet stores, and such until he/she completes the puppy vaccination series at 4 months of age, but so should the adult dogs in the household. Please do not adopt a puppy if you cannot protect him/her from exposure to virus' as his/her immune system develops.

Please remember that puppies require a midday meal, frequent potty breaks, and plenty of playtime for the first several months. Make arrangements if needed to have someone visit midday, every day, if no one will be home.

Foster Home Location: Fox Lake, IL
