How much is that doggy in the window? Who cares when money can buy you love from one of the adorable mutts (or cats) from Wright-Way Rescue. Adoptions run $280 for pooches and $115 for the kit and caboodle, but when you consider how much care the Niles-based no-kill shelter gives to their adoptees, it’s a drop in the water bowl. Wright-Way organizes extensive temperament tests and gives each critter a full bill of health before finding them a forever home; plus, they reserve your pet with approved application. Check out the mug shots online and just tell us it isn’t the best dog show ever.
