Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Charlie is a 13 year old boy who was forced into a shelter when his owner passed away and no other solution could be found. He is a sweet guy who lived with two beagles (also looking for a home), but his hearing and vision are going and can be easily startled by other dogs. He would do best being an only dog in a home without young children, and with carpeting! Charley had ACL surgery when he was younger, so hardwood floors are difficult for him. PLEASE consider letting this senior live out the rest of his life in your home. He is a sweet and cooperative boy who doesn't have much time left.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

    Meet Cassie's puppies! There are 6 females and 3 males. They were born on August 4th and will be available for adoption on September 29th when they are 8 weeks old. Cassie (mom) was rescued from a high kill shelter in Kentucky and when we took her to get spayed we discovered she was pregnant. We have no idea what the dad is, but we are guessing they are some sort of collie/sheltie/border collie- type pups. We are accepting applications now and beginning to do home visits so that once they are available to go home we have pre-approved families. Each pup's adoption fee is $350 which goes towards the cost of their medical care. We will ... (Read More)also require each family to provide a refundable deposit of $200, which will be returned once proof of completion of a beginning puppy class is provided in a timeframe that is mutually agreed upon. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Canada! Female Possibly Lab/Aussie Mix - Very Petite About 5 months old Canada came to Safe Haven from a high kill shelter in Alabama with a broken leg on July 26th. We took her to our vet here in Illinois, but her leg was so badly damaged that it had to be amputated. Do not let this deter you from meeting Canada - dogs adapt very well to only having 3 legs and who can resist that sweet face? Less than a month after her surgery, she acts like nothing is different about her! She runs, plays and takes stairs just like any other dog! She has a clean bill of health from the vet too. She loves to play with other dogs, and also cats, ... (Read More)although cats don't like playing with her too much! She is sooooo soft, and her two different colored eyes are just gorgeous. She loves to be loved and when you rub her chest and belly she just melts! She also snuggles into your neck when you carry her. Canada has never met an adult of child that she didn't love! She is more than happy to spend time cuddling with you. She is gentle and happy go lucky. She also enjoys playing with her toys and chewing on her bones. If you believe that you can give her all the things in the world that she deserves and then some, please email us for an application. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

Poodle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Please welcome Jeffrey to Making A Difference Rescue! Jeffrey is a Poodle/ Westie/ Terrier mix. He is guesstimated to be between 2-3 years old and weighs about 12lbs. He does take a bit to warm up as he is a bit cautious with new people. Once you have earned his trust, he becomes an extremely friendly, affectionate happy boy with a tail wag that goes a mile a minute. He does not seem to know any commands but has learned to go to his crate at night to sleep. He is still learning his indoor manners with fewer accidents as each day passes. He absolutely loves other dogs, big and small. Please remember we can not adopt out of state ... (Read More)because a home visit is a requirement. We require an at home evaluation and screening prior to adoption. We do this to ensure that our animals will go to safe forever homes. We ask that you please email and inquire whether we are able to travel to your area. If you are interested in providing Jeffrey a forever home, please fill out our adoption survey http://makingadifferencerescue.com/adoption-survey/ This will expedite your inquiry as we are not able to return phone calls or emails during our own non volunteer working hours.

    I do have an adoption fee of $250 to cover my vetting and to help save the next pup. I am fully Vetted/Nuetered/Microchipped/Heartworm Neg on preventative and also under flea/tick treatment as well I am looking for my perfect home within 50 miles of Chicago Illinois an application and home visit a requirement I am such a good little doggie!! Cute too!! Our Adoption Process... Adoption Application Meet and Greet Home visit Adoption Contract Adoption fee *** Please be patient, we are a very small organization and we all sadly have to work and have families just like you. We also know the excitement of finding a pet that could be your furever ... (Read More)family member and we receive numerous inquiries from other families who feel the same way. Our primary goal is matching the perfect family with our pups and do not practice first come, first serve". We are setting up many meet and greets with our pups and the family could be found prior to you even getting to meet them. We will make sure all potential adopters who inquired are updated if the pup has been adopted. We do not want to waste anyone's time and recommend you keep looking while you wait to hear from us and as always Thank You for adopting and not shopping. *** Adoption applications will be sent via email only, we do not have them posted online anywhere or on a website. Please visit us on our Facebook page for more information and photos of our adoptable pup by using our link Web: www.facebook.com/TheFirstStepRescue ************************************************************************************************ I came in as a stray - With no place to go - I will go to a place - They call my foster home. Please email TheFirstStepRescue@sbcglobal.net with any question or for further information . My name is Ida Mae and I am a 2 1/2 year old female Lab mix. I came into a shelter with a broken back and no one has any idea how it happened either. I didn't have a chance at the shelter so I came to rescue and went to my foster home. With all the love and care, I have completely healed and I require no further treatments. I am a small girl weighing only 35lbs and I am a young girl. I get along great with children but I will be placed in an adult home or with a family with adult children. Sadly with my back I can not have youngsters crawling or climbing on me. I also get along with other dogs but again I would like to be the only furbaby in the home, I can not really rough house with another dog esp my size or larger but maybe if your furbaby is very low keyed and small there may be a possibility. I really should 'not' have a lot of stairs to tackle, no stairs would be ideal but we know many homes have stairs, we will ask the vet to see how many I can handle on a daily basis. I would love to be the tennis ball/frisbee pup but sadly I can not do those things anymore so I will settle for those nice long walks and even stopping to look at the wildlife, almost like I am pointing.. or even trotting around my yard instead, as long as I have a family I will be happy. I am crate trained but I still need to be watched with housebreaking and with a little more time, love and training I will be the diamond I am destined to be. I just love to be loved and love to love back, if you pet me I will be a velcro dog and never leave your side. I am looking for my furever home do you know where it is?

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Polo is a very handle-able, energetic and sweet, two-year-old, male shepherd/terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Polo absolutely loves other dogs (not cats) and plays regularly in doggie play groups. He knows the commands sit, shake, down, stay, and (usually) drop and is working on loose-leash walking. He's a loving and appreciative dog who's goofy and friendly. Polo landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control and was such a volunteer favorite that he is now living happily in a foster home with another dog who he loves to play with. He loves going to the dog park and hasn't met a dog he didn't play nicely with! He's also an ... (Read More)excellent running companion. Although Polo is 99% housebroken, he is looking for a home where someone either works from home, comes home at lunch-time, or has a dog-walker '| he needs a mid-day break! He is quietly crate-trained, but not for over four hours without a break. Polo is usually very gentle, but he can get a bit mouthy/jumpy when excited, so he would do best in a home with teens and adults. Polo is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Polo, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org for an adoption application. Or if you have further questions about his behavior, please contact his foster mom at kathryn.lachey@gmail.com He is currently being fostered in the Bucktown/Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago.

    My husband and I are needing to adopt BOTH of our dogs. They are the same breed. Chihuahua/Rat terrier mix. It is mother & son. This picture is of the son. The mother is smaller and black. They are both adults and very calm. They do not bark a lot. Only if someone knocks or comes in but they do not bark continuously. The mother is very calm and gets along with everyone. The brown one pictured has a little temper. Once he warms up to you he is fine. He is not good with kids that approach his face too fast. These are both great dogs with a long life left in them. We recently had a baby and we do not give these dogs the love & attention they ... (Read More)deserve. We desperately need to find them a home. Both are crate trained and you can have their cages. They MUST stay together. Neither dog has ever walked on a leash so a fenced in yard is a must! We ask that you be an animal lover and take good care of our dogs. Both dogs are fixed. (Less)

Black and Tan Coonhound Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Annie is a Beautiful, sweet, gentle, and social black and Tan Coonhound looking for a special hound loving family to call her own . She is such a well behaved girl that is housetrained, has great indoor manners, and loves all people and other dogs too! She is with a foster home that also has cats, and is ok, just a bit too interested in them. Annie is 3 yrs. , born 2-3-12, and weighs 55#'s . She sleeps all night in her foster Mom's room . She has a low to moderate energy level, and is easy to please . Annie loves exploring on walks, and will need a secure fenced in yard, where she can sniff and wander around safely. If she slips out the ... (Read More)door (and she has ), or gets loose she will explore for 10 minutes then come back to you. She was found as a stray in So. Ill., and came to H.E.L.P. Heartworm Positive. She has completed her treatment with High-Fives, and is ready to continue her journey looking for her permanent loving home. She is a hound, so she does have a baying type bark. She would not do well in an apartment or condo type home as neighbors may not like her hound type talking. Annie is best with someone home most the day as she loves to be with her humans. She is generally a quiet girl, but will bark when you leave, or if she knows you are outside and she's not. Same as many dogs do, just a different type of bark. Coonhound owners are accustomed to this, and if you have not had experience with the breed please read up on it. Annie is so loyal and loving, sensitive to her people, and is just an all over sweetheart! If you are interested in adopting Annie, please go to our web site www.helpinganimals.org and fill out the online adoption application to be contacted about Annie. Thank you for your interest!

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-20-00836Salsa (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Salsa is a sweet, cuddly and gentle 18-month-old, 60-pound, female brindle and white Boxer/American Bulldog/Pit Bull/Great Dane-mix looking for a loving guardian. She can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and is an incredibly loving and playful companion. She is full of kisses and tail wags. Salsa absolutely loves all other dogs and will be happiest in a home with another canine. She is perfectly housebroken, crate-trained and non-destructive in the home. Her foster mom doesn't even crate her at all. Salsa is a good and athletic running partner but she can be strong and stubborn on leash - especially when she sees other dogs ... (Read More)she wants to play with. She'll be phenomenal in training class as she's very food-motivated and super smart. She already knows the commands sit, stay, down, come, and off. She loves to play fetch but equally loves a snuggle session on the couch. She is quiet in the home so she can easily live in a condo, apartment, townhouse or a house with a yard. However, she will loyally bark when she wants to alert you. Her only faults if she has to have some, is that she gets car-sick and she snores. Sadly, Salsa was rescued from a 75-year-old woman who was beating her with a stick with nails in it. She was horribly bloody and beat up when she arrived at Chicago Animal Care and Control. She was full of staples and stitches and caught kennel cough followed by pneumonia after entering the city shelter. When she was finally and luckily transferred to a foster home, she weighed only 40 pounds and didn't trust people. Now, thanks to a loving foster mom she's done a 180 and has learned how kind and fun humans can be. Salsa is now extremely healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm and fecal-tested and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. To meet and possibly adopt Salsa, please contact Kat at kat@fcacc.org for an adoption application, or if you have further questions about Salsa, please contact her foster mom Jennifer at 219-794-4045.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-18-00129Alexis (female)

Lab Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    About Alexis Meet Alexis! DOB 4/24/2005 Weight - About 30lbs. Alexis is a very sweet older dog that probably gave her love to a family that abandoned her in a high kill shelter in Alabama. Senior dogs have little to know chance of getting out of these shelters, so we knew that we had to bring her to safety in Illinois. Like most seniors (including humans) she has some arthritis and her hearing is not as good as a young pup, but she has spunk and can hear. She is currently in a very loving foster home where they are learning more about her each day. They have the following to say about her: She's housebroken, she's great in the car, ... (Read More)rides quietly in the back seat, and seems to really like to go for rides. She likes to go for walks, and walks well on a leash - no pulling or barking. She is fine with other dogs, although she doesn't seem to care one way or the other if they're there or not. She's starting to be a little more affectionate with us - licking when we pet her - but she's still pretty aloof. We're pretty sure she has arthritis, but she gets around just fine, and shows no symptoms when out walking. She's a nice little dog that will make somebody a wonderful companion! We really think that she was probably ignored for most of her life and she's starting to connect with us a little more, but we don't think she's ever going to be the kind of dog to want to sit in your lap & love on you all day. If someone is looking for an older dog to be a companion without being a pest, this is the dog. She'll follow you around wherever you go, but quietly - she wants to be where you are, but she's not annoying about it. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Monkey LOVES other dogs including his foster dog sister, a female Pit Bull. He enjoys playing, cuddling and doing just about ... (Read More)anything with her. Monkey is crate-trained, house-trained when kept on a strict schedule. He is a quick learner who already knows how to 'sit,' and 'dance' for treats. His favorite thing to do is cuddling with his favorite humans, and will sit for hours with anyone who lets him! He would love a person of his own who works from home or is home more often than not.

    Kala is a special girl. She is an Autralian labradoodle, and is now 20 weeks old. We took her in at just hours old. She was born with a cleft palate, since she could not suckle she was relinquished. She was tube fed around the clock for 6 weeks. She now eats and drinks on her own. Aside from an occasional snotty nose she has no issues related to her palate. Potential adopters should do some research on cleft palates, talk to their vet, and research the cost of cleft repair( as of right now we do not believe she needs it, however things can always change). She is a sweet, calm puppy. Working on basic commands and potty training.

    Casey is an amazing dog. He was left at a training facility, in which a rescue took him. Casey has been sitting in a kennel for over two years and is currently being sent to another facility in which he will sit in an even smaller kennel. Casey is a very loving dog with the right person. He will play ball all day and night if you let him. He loves to sit next to you and chew on a stick or a rawhide. Casey is extremely smart and responds quickly to corrections, he even knows sit, down, paw, high five and roll over. Casey needs time to learn and trust after the life he has had so far. He will bond with the right person and follow you ... (Read More)everywhere, sit next to you, and snuggle up. Casey would do best in a home with no small children or cats. Casey hasn't been around too many dogs, but I am sure with time and patience he will learn to accept another. He truly is an amazing dog, and would be a wonderful companion. Due to him being in a kennel, he has not had much socialization with strangers and does become weary. He is up to date on all vaccines. Casey is an amazing dog, and deserves to feel like that in a wonderful loving home. We can't let him sit in a kennel and not know what love truly feels like. He will not disappoint! (Less)

    Jack came to my daughter's house as a stray dog about 5 years ago. We knew if we turned him in he would most likely be euthanized. Jack is a good dog, but does not like to be disciplined. He can chew through almost anything. And although he was completely house-trained at one time, lately he leaves his scent here and there throughout the house. I believe the problem might be the other dogs I have. I want Jack to go to a GOOD home - a dog or pitbull lover who is willing to work with Jack and re-train him. If he didn't work out, I would always be willing to take him back.

    Ogi is friendly & affectionate towards everyone; but, is sometimes rambunctious and challenging to control. At 16 months he is 95 pounds. He may be okay with children, we just haven't had him around any since rescuing him 4 months ago from a native american hunting camp. He may be too overpowering for small children. I need to give him up because of a serious chronic back condition that makes it too difficult for me to handle him.

When Frankie sleeps he is nestled under blankets on his soft bed in his kennel. He also likes falling asleep on the couch with you under all the blankets. He would do best in a home where he is not alone longer than 6 hours because he will have accidents and get into mischief. Currently, he only goes outside with his leash on. He loves ... (Read More)walks and one of his favorite spots is to sit by the window, feel the heat on him and see all the happenings outside. Frankie tends to be a bit vocal with neighborhood activity. This littler charmer is a sweet boy. Frankie is eager to be with his forever family and his adoption fee is $200.00 only for a short time. Apply today because little Frankie is anxious to meet you!

    Lance - Arriving Soon - Taking Applications Now! Lance - Beagle/Jack Russel mix, about 30 lbs. Is said to be sweet and loving and gets along great with other dogs! He is available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets him when he arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay his head until he finds his forever home. We ... (Read More)also require that you have the ability to take him to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.

She was adopted out briefly and returned shortly after as she was too active and the family couldn't keep up with her physical needs. Kenai would ideally go to owners experienced with Huskies or similar breeds who can give her an outlet for her energy. She LOVES the dog park and would love to be a running buddy!

Boss unfortunately gets passed by at the shelter time and time again, maybe because of his size and/or pit label? He may do best in a home without small kids or other dogs only because of his size and some toy guarding issues. However, the guarding issues can definitely be overcome with time and patience!

    Jimbo is such a sweet dog that has been passed around shelters for far too long. He has a lot of energy and is very intelligent, so he definitely doesn't do well living in a cage. Jimbo absolutely loves playing with toys! Because of his high energy level, Jimbo would likely do best in a home without young children. He is strong but would respond very well to training, and he already knows a few basic commands. He is very wiggly and affectionate : ) Jimbo just needs a family to call his own to play with and exercise him!

    Meet Stella! About 40 Pounds Lab/Sheltie Stella came to Illinois from a shelter in Alabama the works tirelessly to find rescues for abandoned dogs. We don't know the things that she has been through in her short life, but we do know she needs love! Stella is shy and a bit fearful when she first meets you and will occasionally growl at strangers, but that is most likely due to her past experiences. Once she gets to know you, she will show you her charming and playful side and her energetic personality! Stella gets along with other dogs and really enjoys rough housing with her foster siblings and chewing on toys. In fact, we believe that ... (Read More)she would fit best in a home with another dog(s) and/or older kids. Stella is currently living with a cat. She is not aggressive towards the cat and she does not chase him. In addition to playing, Stella greatly enjoys eating'|most likely due to her being abandoned and lacking food. She shows no food aggression but will try and eat the other dog's food after she quickly finished her own. Stella has basic training completed including 'sit,' and 'come.' She tries to wander around the neighborhood but returns home when called. With training, Stella has the potential to do well in an unfenced yard, but a fenced yard is preferable. She walks well on a leash and enjoys nightly walks before bed. Stella is accustomed to snuggling in bed with you at night and roaming the house while you are at work. She has not been crated, is just about house broken and will have it mastered quickly with continued training. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend.

But she has the wrinkly face, triangle ears and skinny little tail of a Shar Pei. She knows the command sit and takes treats gently from your fingers. She's also housebroken and crate-trained. While she adores Chance, she is sometimes selective of her other dog friends. Chance is shorter and slightly heavier at 55 pounds. He is fluffy, plush and sweet and ... (Read More)great with all people and all dogs - but not cats. He's a gentle sweetheart who is housebroken and crate-trained. He loves his best friend Reba. He does have some vision and hearing issues and arthritis in his elbows. These two would love to live out their days together with a loving family. They'd love a fenced yard so they can cuddle and play together. Their adoption fee as a pair of $350 benefits the rescued dogs of We Luv Paws. They are spayed/neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested, and on monthly heartworm preventative. They are currently at a boarding center in Plano, Illinois. To meet and possibly adopt Chance and Reba, please contact Jen at peachesash@aol.com or 630-553-7829. (Less)

    Leo is a very friendly dog. He was about 7 months old when I got him and had a broken rib and weighed about 40 pounds. He is now very healthy and weighs about 90 pounds. He is not nurtured and pretty energetic. He loves to cuddle. He does really good at the dog park and loves to go to the forest preserves and run around off leash. He doesn't run away and He loves to swim. He currently has a brother who is about a year older and a little bit smaller. They get along great and are best friends. They love to spend hours swimming in a lake or pool and love to play fetch even tho Leo doesn't give the ball back. He currently knows how to sit and ... (Read More)give paw. He is starting to get the hang on lay down if you repeat it and point at the ground. We are working on drop it but he doesn't like that command very much and even when he does drop his toy he usually picks it up right away. He does growl sometimes when he's playing tug of war but it's a playful growl. He also growls when he feels threatened but he usually gets sent to his cage when he growls and he's really good about that and will usually get in his cage right away. He does like to cry in when he's in his cage though. I would really love to keep him but I am moving out of state and it just won't be possible. I have about 2 weeks to find him a new home or else I will have to end up giving him up to a shelter and I would really hate to do that since he is a out bull and a big dog. I'm afraid he will be stuck in the shelter for to long or will end up getting out down. If interested please contact me ASAP. I'm starting to run out of options. (Less)

This shelter has very dedicated volunteers that network their dogs to find rescue. We took one look and knew that we needed to bring them to Illinois to find their forever families. Kick is such a sweetheart! He is fairly calm for a puppy and you will find him cozying up next to you when he is done playing. Speaking of playing, he loves to play with his chew toys and is currently in a foster home with his brother'|they play together and keep each other entertained. Kick gets along great with ...

He is a smart boy in search of his forever family, and would love to have children or another dog to hang out with! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    .Meet Bron! Male Border Collie Mix DOB 6/16/14 Bron came to us from Alabama where he was found abandoned. It may sound odd to say that he was lucky to be sent to a high kill shelter, but he is, because this shelter does everything it can to find rescue for their dogs. We brought him to Illinois and is in a foster home. His foster has this to say about him: Bron is a sweet, gentle dog. He aims to please, but since he is a Border Collie mix, he also has a bit of a stubborn streak! He loves to snuggle and have his belly rubbed. In his foster home, there are no other dogs to play with and he gets bored. He would definitely benefit from another ... (Read More)canine companion in his home and a fenced in yard to romp around in. If he is out without another dog or person to play with, he sits by the door waiting to come in (he doesn't like to be out alone). He thrives on taking several walks a day, without them he gets restless and launches into crazy puppy mode. Being one of the herding breeds, he will do best in a home with older children since he has the instinct to herd them. He is fantastic in his crate (though he doesn't like to go in there initially), but he is great once in. He is not a super high energy dog, he sleeps a good part of the day as long as his walk and romp needs are met. He goes to bed at about 7pm and is out for the night (unless there is commotion in the house)! He is learning leash manners and has recently tried a gentle leader that has done wonders! Since he was most likely an outside dog in his past life, his foster family is working on housebreaking as well. His foster says that he is an AWESOME dog that dreams of a fenced yard and another dog to play with! Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.

His downfall is that loud noises such as fireworks scare him and he needs some basic obedience training on a leash, but none the less he is the biggest sweetheart around. The reason for rehoming is that I am a single mom and with school starting this fall, I am finding it harder and harder to afford an animal and I ...

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-14-00673manny (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    **good* with kids, but probably best in a home with older children or only adults*** is a 2 year old chihuahua mix. We took Manny in to our home in December, because the person who had was going to put him to sleep because he did not want him anymore. We never planned on keeping Manny we just wanted to make sure he was not put to sleep. We decided to try and keep him, but after having the last 6 months we have realized he is not a good fit with our family. He is a very sweet little dog who loves to cuddle and be with people. We have a 2 year old son, a 9 month old baby, a 10 year old terrier mix ( about 40 pounds), and a shitzu and Manny ... (Read More)gets along great with all of them. The problem we have is Manny needs more training and attention than we can give him right now. He has had some potty training issues and I was hoping after having neutered this would no longer be a problem, but unfortunately it still remains an issue, however, he does know that he is supposed to go outside to potty and will go to the door to let you know he needs out. He also tends to want to chew on the kids toys. I believe that with the proper training and a person/family who has more time to spend with him he could get past both of these habits. My husband works full 2 times at 2 jobs and I go to school full time and with the new baby and 2 other dogs Manny is not getting the attention or training that he needs and deserves, so we feel it would be best for him to go to someone with more time to give him. Manny must go to someone with patience, and preferably someone with experience training dogs. We are asking for a $100 re-homing fee to ensure he goes to a good home. Interview will be necessary for anyone interested in Manny. (Less)

    This is a real cutie. He is around 2 years old and weighed in at 18 lbs. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in TX. He is very scared of men, so a household with women only is ideal for him. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some lab. All we know is that he is way too cute.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    . Male Beagle/Aussie/Jack Russell mix. DOB 2/20/14 Approximate weight - 30lbs Bandit was abandoned in rural Kentucky during one of the coldest winters on record. He was lucky to have been found by a wonderful rescue angel that knew he deserved a much better life! Bandit is a happy little ball of energy. He is always super excited to see you... if you have been gone for hours, or you just let him in from the back yard after 5 minutes. He is attentive, and eager to please; a very quick learner. He can be left alone, out of his crate, for a few hours without him getting into anything he's not supposed to We have been working on training; he ... (Read More)is proficient with sit and lay down. He makes good eye contact waiting for your direction, and he waits patiently after his food is put down for his cue to chow down. Stay is a work in progress. He takes a little while to warm up to other dogs, and seems to be protective of his space. Having said that, he became fast friends with the resident pooch in his foster home, but it was not without the requisite barking, growling, posturing, and hair raising. That episode lasted for about 5 minutes before they were let loose in the back yard together to figure each other out. After about 10 minutes of testing each other's limits... they have been playing non-stop ever since. Having another dog in the home is very beneficial for him! His playmate is also young so his high level of energy is matched by hers. Bandit loves everyone, old and young. He loves getting attention from grown people, but also seems to love big hugs from small people. When you first meet him one of the first things you notice (after getting over his adorable little fuzzy face), is that he has some of the most gorgeous eyes ever... one is light blue, and the other is mostly brown, with some light blue at the top. Sometimes he gets his left lip rolled up near his gums like dogs do on occasion, which just makes him that much cuter! This little guy has Jack Russell and Aussie traits, but his unbridled love and excitement makes him more than worth it for the right home! Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.

Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mufassa is a handsome, noble pittie gentleman with a beautiful brindled coat. He used to be a junkyard dog, but you'd never know it from his love for people! He's extremely affectionate, gentle, and mellow. Because he didn't meet a lot of dogs in his previous life, he isn't very comfortable with them. He'd prefer to be an only dog, and we think he deserves to be the apple of someone's eye!

    Chelsea is a beautiful, loving and very sweet, 35-pound, five-year-old, female, pit bull terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. She is an extremely happy girl whose tail is always wagging. She adores being pet and is full of loving kisses. She is housebroken and quietly crate-trained; Chelsea has an auto poop and pee as soon as she gets in the yard '| something all dog parents appreciate - especially in the winter! She has been going through training since she's been rescued and she knows the command sit, and takes treats nicely from your fingers. She's extremely responsive to people, protective and very treat-motivated. However, ... (Read More)she'd do best in a home as the one and only dog. She is doing well with a cat in her current foster home. Rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control, Chelsea had been found living alone in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago in the bitter cold of winter. Thanks to Realtors to the Rescue, she was scooped up to safety. The poor girl was scarred, emaciated, full of worms, and had clearly been used for breeding. Chelsea is a funny dog in both personality and in physique. Her limbs and joints are malformed so she has a bow-legged bulldog stance on a tiny pit bull-like body. But Chelsea is anything but immobile. She is energetic and wiggly and loves galloping in a fenced in yard. Last Thanksgiving, Chelsea suffered a slipped disc in her lower spine. After a round of steroids, pain meds and muscle relaxers, Chelsea bounced back nicely. She is now healthy, spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm-tested.
