Teddy has been returned twice back to the rescue. We want his third home to be the one for him. He has been with his foster mom since September 2016. His foster mom is worried about his future and what will happen to this sweet boy. She has recently received some news where Teddy's permanent placement soon is one of her wishes. To see him in his new home, relaxed and happy would be a great gift for the foster mom to see. He will only regress if he's taken back to animal control. So please share so that right person out there will see Teddy and know he is the one for them.
Teddy is approximately 3 years old and weighs 65lbs. Teddy is a sweet and loving dog. He LOVES to cuddle and play.
Teddy does great on walks too. He knows how to sit and is great on a leash.
Teddy is a love-bug but needs a home with NO OTHER PETS. He is male selective but will warm up to the right guy. Teddy has been through two adoptive homes that just did not have his best interest at heart. Now that he is back with the rescue, he has come a long way.
Know any single ladies with no other pets looking for a dog? Or a kind patient guy that will take the time Teddy needs to trust again? Tell them about Teddy!
Teddy has vet issues and must be sedated, but our current vet just loves him and his anxiety is much improved. Teddy needs someone to stick by him and not let him down.
Teddy NEEDS someone that will earn his trust and have patience with his anxiety/fears.

The dog adoption application is located here:
Most of the animals listed on here are in foster homes, but some are still residing at the Granite City Animal Control until they can be adopted or there is a foster home opening.
Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more fosters.
If you are interested in fostering, the foster application is located here:
Pound Pets volunteers cleans the animal control building, we are the caregivers for the animals brought in. Once they come through the door, they become our responsibility. We photograph all animals and post to the Pound Pets Facebook page. We provide them clean kennels, beds, blankets, toys, treats, outside play time, walks and human interaction. We try to comfort the scared, keep the high-energy ones exercised and provide plenty of love and affection to make their time at animal control as less stressful as possible.
Sometimes they get reclaimed by their families and sometimes they don't. If they don't it is our responsibility to find the adopters, fosters or rescues to save them from euthanasia.
We get in sick and injured animals as well. They do not sit in their kennels or cages needing veterinary care. Once we see the need for care they are taken to the vet. Sometimes the illness or injury is minor and the city will cover the bill, Other times when it's not, we do. We do all of this on our own dime. We buy the food, the beds, the blankets, the toys, and all the other things that go into care for the animals. Sometimes things are donated and that is wonderful!! We pay the medical bills that the city doesn't. As with most animal controls, there is a limit on what they will do or cover. At Pound Pets, there is no limit. Broken Bones, Surgery, Parvo, Heartworm, etc., if the animal has a chance the animal is given that chance. This is not a shelter but an animal control.
