Illinois Shorthair Rescue operates as a not-for-profit breed rescue group based in Northern Illinois. The goal of ISR is to help German Shorthaired Pointers in need from IN, IL, W , to place them into responsible, permanent homes, and to educate the public about the breed. Our dogs come from animal control organizations, humane societies, and owner give-up situations. All of our dogs are fostered in private homes.

Our Adoption Process:

ISR requires an application be on file and an in home visit be preformed prior to adoption. All dogs are released with an adoption contract. Fees collected go strictly to supporting vet care, food and training for all orphans.

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.
