Claire Bear is a brittany spaniel mix with short hair. Appoximately 1 yr. old, weighs 50 lbs. Claire is house broken.

She has separation anxiety and does not like being locked in a kennel. She has been practicing calming down while in the kennel but is still very stressed when locked in. Claire will go in the kennel on command. Her kennel is like home base while we are training. She stays in her kennel while I hide treats in the house. Then I will tell her to find it. She stays in there while I hide in the house. I will either say come or blow a whistle for her to come. Claire also eats meals and special treats in her kennel. Trying to associate positive feelings for the kennel.

About Pound Pets, Inc - Jerseyville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

In 2014 we received our Rescue License from the state of IL. We did this mainly to help the animals in the facility that do not get reclaimed, adopted or tagged by other rescues. We also take back the animals that were adopted from animal control that are being returned because it doesn't work out. We do not want these animals going back to animal control so they come into our rescue.

With all the animals that come through animal control it is impossible for one rescue to take them all. So, we will be stepping up our efforts to bring more rescues aboard to help us with the animals that come through the facility.

We also have a Community Outreach program in our community. People can contact the volunteers for the best time to come to the animal control to pick up the food donations. This program was started to help those struggling to feed their animals. We understand that things happen and finances get tight. Often the first thing some do it cut the costs of feeding their pets by rehoming or taking them to animal control. Our goal is to keep these pets in their homes by providing food, at no cost.
