All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption. Adoption donation: $450 We open at 9 am Saturday mornings and we will be helping adoptions in the order of when they submitted an approved application to us. There will be a sign in sheet ... (Read More)on the front door at 8:30 am so that we can pull applications for the people that arrive between 8:30-9am. Again, the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Saturday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 8:30 to sign in. This will be the procedure for people that arrive between 8:30-9am. After 9am, on Saturday mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 8:30-9am. Most people submit general applications to us which do not specify a name or a particular litter they are interested in so there is no way for us to know until people arrive Saturday morning at 8:30 how many people are interested in a particular litter, puppy, kitten, cat or adult dog. We always have around 300 dogs & cats available for adoption and the adoption counselors will help you to find the right companion for your family! We look forward to meeting you! All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-15-00124Phoenix (male)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hello! This is Phoenix. We've had him for 2 years now, after rescuing him from PAWS at 4 months old. He is in perfect health, knows his commands (sit, lay down, off, go, stay, okay, etc), he's absolutely house trained with no problems ever in that department. Circumstances in our lives are forcing us to make a decision we never thought we'd be making. So here we are, trying to find a wonderful new home for this happy guy. Honestly, we don't want money, we simply want to know that he is going to a family that will love him and continue to keep him happy and healthy, instead of a shelter. He is a loving, loyal, and super energetic dog. He ... (Read More)loves nothing more than running, being chased, and chasing anything that moves (dogs, balls, frisbees, squirrels, rabbits, etc etc). He'll play fetch for days if you're up for it. We go to the dog park every day so he can get his energy out. He loves to meet every single dog and be a part of whatever pack may be forming on any particular day. He is deeply curious about everything. He is a little wary of new people--it takes him a second to submit to someone new, but once he does, he is immediately on his back and ready for a tummy rub. Once he trusts you, he will love you with every ounce of his being. Though he loves to play, he loves to snuggle and nap equally as much! His favorite thing is to curl up right next to you under a blanket, or under the sheets of your bed ;) He also loves a good body massage, as he is a ball of lean muscle! He loves attention, and is happy to just follow you around wherever you go in the hopes you might stop and give him some love. Ideally, we'd love to find him a family that will send us a few photos and videos once in a while to let us know that he is happy, loved, and living his best life, as we never thought we'd be saying goodbye to a beautiful life we rescued a few years back. Have courage and be kind--it's how we try to live our lives, and we are trying to be as courageous as possible here, because this is one of the hardest decisions we've ever had to make. Please be kind in return, and we will know that your family will be the right fit for this amazing guy. (Less)

Animal ID: A180193Willow (female)

Pointer Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Urgent! Willow needs a foster or adopter so her life will be spared. She is at a high kill shelter that is full and dogs are being killed. Willow was excited to run around and get toys. She would gallop with them in her mouth, then drop them until we threw another. Willow wasn't too interested in cuddling, just happy to be outside with the occasional drive-by for some petting. Please save her life before it's too late. Fostering is free of charge and everything is provided within a 90 mile radius of Chicago. Volunteers are willing to help with transport.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pointer in Illinois
    Pointer Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The English Pointer is a proud, elegant hunting dog. Pointers are good with children and devoted to their families. Pointers need to be with people and need to be socialized as puppies. Some Pointers can be skittish or aloof. Pointers need plenty of exercise and activity to be happy and healthy. This breed is best for a home with lots of open land.

lnteresting Pointer Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Once a Pointer has cornered its game, it will freeze in place to point out its quarry. The modern Pointer is a mixture of several breeds including Foxhounds, Greyhounds, and Bulldogs. The English Pointer as it is currently known has only been around for about eighty years. Pointers enjoy lounging around on upholstered furniture.
