"Saints Among Us", Illinois Saint Bernard Rescue, affiliated with the National Saint Bernard Rescue Foundation, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping abandoned, abused, homeless, and relinquished Saints find a "forever home". ISBR is run solely by volunteers who have a great love for the breed and the dedication to help save them. Our volunteers put in countless hours and travel great distances, to ensure that these wonderful Saints find loving forever homes and are not destroyed. Because we are a rescue group, we do not have "shelter" where the animals are housed. We provide temporary, loving foster homes for all of our dogs until they are placed in their new homes. The dogs are fully vaccinated, sterilized, micro-chipped, parasite, and heartworm free. They are also temperament tested in a variety of situations. Most dogs are 18 months and older. We occasionally get puppies under one year of age. Some of our dogs may require special needs while others just require a lifetime of love.

Our Adoption Process:
In order to assure that the Saint Bernard you are interested in adopting is best suited to your lifestyle, and that it will be placed in a loving environment that is compatible with its needs, you will need to complete an adoption application. Prior to submitting your application, we ask that you read, and fully understand, the terms of our adoption contract. Once we receive the application, the process begins. If you are interested in adopting a particular dog, please note that on the application. We would like to get the ball rolling as soon as we receive your application. We will check both personal and veterinary references. We will also perform a home visit. The average time from start to finish may take up to 2 weeks. We strive to place our Saints quickly but not carelessly so all applications will be reviewed thoroughly. Our adoption fee is $350. This fee covers the necessary veterinary related cost to ready the Saint for adoption and the cost to feed and house the Saints while in rescue. They are sterilized, fully vaccinated, heartworm and parasite free, and micro-chipped for identification.
