About Our Rescue Group:

Pound Dog Rescue is a non-profit, community-based group organized in February of 2005. We rescue and find homes for lonely and abandoned dogs in Central Illinois, from Springfield to Cass County. Our group has grown with the support of many people around the state and the country. We work with other individuals and groups such as the APL, to find homes for as many animals as we can. There is never a shortage of animals who need homes, but with your help we can put a big dent in the problem.

Come Meet our Pets:

Every SECOND Saturday and FOURTH Sunday of the month, we have adoptions at PetSmart in Springfield, IL. To volunteer one of these days, just call or email us, or look on the web site for more information: http://pounddogrescue.org/news.htm

Our Adoption Process:

To adopt a dog, first you pick the one you want. You contact us via email or phone, fill out the short application, meet the dog, and take him or her home! Your dog will already have been bathed, flea-dipped, microchipped, given all its immunization shots, spayed or neutered, and we will provide you a collar and leash. All we ask is for a donation of $125 to cover these costs. there is no separate application fee.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
