“When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.”
– Nora Ephron, author & playwright

Get ready to have your socks knocked off when you meet Robin, KCAC’s adorable dog wonder.
Evildoers will be making tracks out of Gotham City once they get a load of this guy.
OK, for full disclosure, KCAC’s Robin isn’t part of the Batman and Robin dynamic duo, but he is something of a superhero!
Here at Kane County Animal Control, we feel all our shelter animals qualify as super heroes. Often they have rough lives and overcome difficult circumstances, and all they want to do is make the world a better place. Thank goodness for volunteers and shelter staff (superheroes in their own right) who give these wonderful animals a chance of finding a forever superfamily.
Without a doubt, Robin is a superhero extraordinaire.
This 2-year-old tricolor German Shepherd-mix was owner-surrendered due to too many animals in the home. A 62-pound, sweet-natured and gentle young man, Robin gets along very well with other dogs that are calm and centered, but he isn’t happy when another dog becomes agitated or overexcited.
The best story line for Robin involves a loving owner and as much exposure to other dogs as possible, including training sessions, which will give him time to focus and help mellow out his super-powered energy levels.
Robin is ready and able to find his forever home and become his new family’s superhero.
