Our Adoption Process:

Adoption is very easy. Just ask for an application, we will e-mail you one, then fill out the application and return to us, wait to be approved(done within 24 hours). Then, we will try to match you with your new best friend. We will ship dogs out of state by transport or airlines to approved homes. We can send a dog to Joliet if someone from Chicago area would like to meet some of the dogs. If dog is shipped by airplane. Adoptee will be responsible for shipping costs (airline ticket and health certificate). Adoption fee reimburses the rescue for some of medical cost invested in the dogs. When rescueing dogs no one makes money, in fact we put a lot of our own money into saving these neat cattle dogs. Adoption fees vary $200.-$300 Please have an application filled out and be approved prior to coming to visit that way you can take one home if you wish.

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.
