Every few weeks this fall, Chicago Trolley will continue to host the Adoption Trolley, a classic red and green trolley full of wet-nosed and wiggly-tailed dogs on their own private “Pup Crawl,” all available to be taken home to be part of a loving family. Locals will be able to stop by the Adoption Trolley to meet and play with their potential new pets and speak with volunteers on-site.  Official adoptions will take place at the shelter.  All dogs are vetted, spayed or neutered, and micro-chipped.
