Available Foster Dogs

Meet our current foster dogs who are looking for their loving fur-ever homes in Elmhurst!


At Camp Bow Wow Elmhurst, we believe every dog should have a loving fur-ever home. We work closely with local shelters and rescues to help with their adoption efforts, and often have foster dogs staying at Camp. The dogs you see on this page are all up for Adotption through the amazing rescue Players for Pits! For more information on any of the dogs you see here, please go to 


About Players for Pits Rescue Group...

Players for Pits is a 501c3, non profit rescue that connects the professional athletes to the community in order to come together to take a stand against the abuse and neglect of animals. PFP serves the western suburbs of Chicago and is a foster based rescue, so the dogs in our care are in foster homes learning the basics of being a well balanced dog versus being in cages at loud boarding facilities. The athletes involved in our rescue actively support the rescue efforts and help by spreading the word of dogs in need. It is the mission of Players for Pits to educate dog owners about proper pet care - both physical and mental - so that the dogs in our care can be happy, well balanced members of society. It is our goal to rescue dogs from high kill shelters and place them into loving homes in the suburbs. At Players for Pits we stand up for pit bulls, who's character is routinely tarnished and often misrepresented. We recognize the pit bull for what it is: a DOG. And any dog with the right care and owners can be a wonderful pet. While we are an advocate for pit bulls, we do not discriminate based on breed and will take in other breeds if they need you help. Players for Pits is also very active in the community and we co-host clinics to help struggling families maintain their pets health, we train pit bull type dogs to become therapy dogs for children with abusive backgrounds, and we try to involve the community in our goal to reduce pet abandonment.

Adopt Rossy!

Rossy is a total lap dog, all 60lbs of him. 😂 He wants nothing more than to be curled up by your side on the couch while watching Netflix. He loves to relax and chew his bones, it's one of his favorite things to do along with playtime of course! He knows when it's time to go to bed and often heads on over to his crate when he is done for the night.

In previous Rossy posts we have stated that he may potentially need surgery on one (if not both) knees for his CCL tears. Although surgery may be in the near future, we are accepting inquires and applications on Rossy. If Rossy sounds like your kinda guy, please contact us at and/or fill out an application at Surgery will be paid for by the rescue.
