Scout- ADOPTION PENDING!'s Story...
Scout's Facebook Album . Scout is now safe in foster care and doing great with all the dogs and the child in the home. He is about as perfect as a Pointer can be. We will be updating his Facebook album weekly.


The last week of 2013, I was contacted by a gal that adopted this gorgeous Pointer from a shelter near Springfield, IL. As she lived in a condo without a fenced in yard- she quickly learned that
Scout needed a more active home. As she was going to return him to the shelter we moved him into foster care with an adopter that runs a boarding facility in Wisconsin.


 


All IBR dogs in foster care are learning to be crate trained, housebroken, socialized with other dogs and loved on by their human foster parents. Adoption fees are used to cover vetting expenses and special need dogs' vetting care. Our adoption guidelines also require non-smoking homes and safe fenced in yards.


If you are interested in adopting this pet through our rescue organization, please go to the Adopting A Friend section to read about our pre-adoption policies and vetting protocols.


 


 


 


Please help us reach our fundraising goal so we can continue our work helping save these homeless hunters and other abused and neglected dogs and puppies! We have a long way to go and any amount --big or small--will make a huge difference especially if the dog or puppy is in an area where they use gas chambers to euthanize. We see the worst that humans can do to defenceless animals- but with your donation- we will be able to do more to end the suffering of many frightened dogs and puppies.



 


Others Ways You Can Make a Difference


Shop for 2011 custom calendars, mugs and T-shirts at our Café Press fundraising website and choose merchandise featuring Pointers, Setters, Hunting Dogs or Friendly Mutts. All of our calendar stars are rescued dogs that would have been euthanized in shelters across the Mid-West had IBR not stepped in to save them. Your support does make a difference!!


 


Help offset the high cost of our vetting bills via the Petfinder.com Sponsor-A-Pet link. Illinois Birddog Rescue has always prided itself in not turning away any sick and injured dogs; animals that most shelters would have euthanized. We have saved many dogs with heartworm, tick borne illnesses, broken legs, missing legs, blind dogs, a new deaf puppy, dogs suffering from Parvo and especially senior dogs that may need expensive health care to help them get ready for adoption. In February of 2006, in one weekend, we brought in 20+ dogs from the Boat Mountain Tragedy, and that depleted our emergency funds.


Your donation will not go unnoticed. In addition to helping save lives, when you donate your name will be added to the Illinois Birddog Rescue Donations and Rescue Sponsor List.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scout- ADOPTION PENDING!, a Wood Dale English Pointer/German Shorthaired Pointer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Pointer/German Shorthaired Pointer for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a English Pointer/German Shorthaired Pointer dog from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wood Dale breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Pointer/German Shorthaired Pointer breeders who help with English Pointer/German Shorthaired Pointer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
