Sunday is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day and to celebrate, Barkworthies natural dog treats is covering adoption costs at two Chicago shelters. Chicago Canine Rescue and One Tail at a Time were selected as featured shelters in the Barkworthies Chews Rescue program, which funds adoptions for eligible dogs during the last weekend in April.

Adoption fees typically run between $150 and $350, which makes this promotion a treat for anyone looking to bring home a new four-legged friend. If you're interested in adopting a dog at either of these rescues, you'll first have to submit an application prior to the day of adoption and a background check must be completed.
