“Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And none of them are wrong.”

- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
She races down the hallway as fast as her legs can take her, rushing to reach you. You’re almost sure she’s going to bowl you over by smashing into you, but seconds before, she skids into a stop and plants herself right in front of you in a perfect sit.
Emmy’s eyes search your face for the approval she knows must be coming and she isn’t disappointed. “Good girl, Emmy! You’re such a good girl.”
This 2-year-old pit bull terrier is an absolute sweetheart! Her brown markings almost look as though she’s wearing a sweater with an eye patch to match. She loves people and other dogs and has lots of energy for running and playing fetch in the yard or taking long walks on a cool summer night.
After a day of playing mixed with some training, she’ll shift easily into enjoying the life of a couch potato after the sun goes down. Small couch? Emmy doesn’t mind sharing your space with her head on your lap.
A good listener with a strong propensity to learn new things, Emmy is ready, willing and able to adjust to her forever family’s routine. And for good measure, she’ll throw in a few kisses to seal the deal!
How fitting that on a rainy, wet Saturday in April, Storm, the young cat that was recently returned to KCAC was adopted by her new family. Word has it that Storm is settling into her new digs very well! Congratulations, Storm! May your life be nothing but sunshine!
