Please Read: Some of our dogs were posted as available in error. There was a computer glitch in our tracking software that posted some of our dogs to PetFinder and other adoption sites that are not available for applications or inquiry at this time. We have corrected our software and it should update on PetFinder within the next 24 hours. 

We deeply apologize and hope you will continue to watch if they do become available in the future! Thank you for understanding!

Due to the overwhelming amount of applications, we are no longer accepting applications for the following adoptable TNT dogs:


Please refer to our Adoptable Dogs Page for the rest of our dogs that are still looking for their furever homes! 

Are you ready to find your next best friend with Tiny N Tall Rescue?! We are sooooo ready to help you!! If you are interested in adopting from us, please read our adoption requirements & our adoption process below, before filling out an application.


TNT's Adoption Requirements:

  • We do adopt out of state, however, The Applicant, ALL dogs,  AND anyone that is living in the home, are responsible for coming to meet the dog, and transporting home. NO EXCEPTIONS. We are based out of Saint Charles, IL. and All of our available dogs are in foster homes through out the state.

  • Everyone living in your household must be in agreement on adopting.

  • Must have any approval needed by either a Landlord or Association.

  • The Adopter must be at least 21 years of age.

  • Must go through adoption approval process by TNT before meeting our adoptable dogs.

  • Requirements for ALL resident dogs in the home:

Our Adoption Process:

  1. Fill out and submit our adoption application.

  2. We require a one time $20 NON-REFUNDABLE application donation before we start to process your application. The application donation will also be subtracted from your final adoption fee. The $20 application donation help all of our doggies for anything they may need.

  3. Once your application has been filled out and submitted for review, and after we receive your $20 application donation, a volunteer from our applications team will reach out to let you know it is being processed.

  4. Our Adoption Team will start by reaching out to conduct your personal phone interview, they will check your vet and personal references, and will email you with instructions on how to complete your virtual home check.

  5. The application process typically takes about 5-7 days, from start to finish. Please remember, we are all volunteers, so please be patient if it takes a little longer. 

  6. Once all of that is completed, and your application has been reviewed and approved for adoption from TNT, you will then receive an approval email with instructions on the next steps to adopt from TNT!


After your Application is Approved:

**Our number one goal is to make sure the home that is chosen, is the best fit for that specific dog.  Your application will be forwarded for review to the foster home of the dog you have applied for about  1-2 weeks before they are ready for adoption.*Please note that when a dog is being shown on our website and Facebook, this does not automatically mean they are ready for adoption.  We require all dogs to be on a minimum of 1-2 week intake hold. Many times this hold can be longer to insure the dog is healthy enough, and behaviorally ready for their furever home. 


Please be patient and the foster home will contact you when the dog is almost ready for adoption. We take multiple applications per dog, and the foster home will be looking over all of the approved interested applicants to see which family may be the right fit for the TNT doggie. They will then decide who to set up a meet and greet with. Everyone who lives in the household must be present for the meet and greet. If you have a dog, that dog must also be present at the time of meeting. If the meet and greet goes well for everyone, you can adopt the dog that day and take them to their new furever home!! We accept credit card, cash, or check for form of payment for the adoption fee donation. Credit Card is preferred due to any hand to hand exchanging.


If you have ANY questions about the process or even after, please email

What is included in the adoption fee?

All of Tiny N Tall’s adoptable dogs will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption (unless they are too young or for health reasons, in which case we will have a spay/neuter contract), up to date on all age appropriate vaccines, microchip with tag and free lifetime registration, 4dx heartworm and tick born disease tested, a new collar & leash, a Tiny N Tall id tag on collar, and a “Welcome to your New Home” Tiny N Tall Rescue reusable bag that includes: a bag of their current food to help transition, 1 Kong, a bag of treats, any of their favorite toys they had while in foster care, 30 days free pet insurance, and an adoption info packet to help you and your new family member transition smoothly into their new home! We ask that you bring your new family member to your family vet within 2 weeks (10 business days) after adoption for your own examination.

* Heartworm Positive Dogs- TNT Dogs that are Heartworm Positive and currently receiving or still needing Heartworm Treatment, Tiny N Tall Rescue, Inc. will cover all heartworm treatment medical costs after adoption. The adopter IS responsible for transporting the adopted dog to and from the Vet Office for all appointments. We use 3 vet offices for the heartworm treatment. The vet offices are located in Hoffman Estates, IL., Lisle, IL., and Westmont, IL. You will discuss before adoption with the foster home or our Heartworm Coordinator about the location. 

* TNT Adoptable Great Danes - All TNT adoptable Great Danes will or have received Gastropexy Surgery. This is an elective surgery that helps prevent Bloat, a life-threatening condition in which the stomach fills with air (dilitation) and twists upon itself (volvulus). It occurs most commonly occurs in large breed, deep-chested dogs, and the #1 breed it effects most are Great Danes. This surgery typically costs dog owners anywhere from $800-$1200. We want to give our Great Danes the best chance at living a happy, healthy, long life with their new furever families!! Here is a link for more information about Gastropexy Surgery & Bloat:
