To my forever family,
It's true, I haven't had to best of luck finding you. I thought I had my real forever family a couple of times, but they didn't work out. I've been through a lot just to try to find you. I have been locked in crates 2 sizes too small, but have also chased bubbles with a little girl. I have been to too many towns, too many homes, and have met too many people that have said how much they love me and how much of a good boy I am. I have met and played lovingly with too many children, too many dogs and even some chickens and still haven't found my family. Needless to say, I have had some crazy ups and downs. So many families have said they would love me until the end and help me become more of a gentleman only to be taken back to my rescuers for reasons beyond my control. I will not let these moments destroy my hope though. I will continue to love every person that I meet. I will continue to work on my gentleman skills. I know my real family is out there and I refuse to give up on finding you. Please do not give up on me.


ZUMI is a love-able staffie mix with a super chunky head. He is about 3 years old and though he has loads of energy and is super playful, a 2-mile run completely tires this big guy out! He is short and sturdy, weighing in at about 55lbs - this guy needs a strong handler. He is friendly towards all people and kids (just watch out for his size). He has done well with some non-dominant dogs. Zumi loves his ball and playing in the water. He would love a home that can handle his awesomeness and give him all the love and exercise he deserves.

Zumi was rescued from a horrible living situation in which he spent all his days in a tiny crate. Amazingly, this guy is very social but it does mean he needs some basic training. Zumi would love to find someone who is fully committed to making their home his new forever home.

Set up a meet-and-greet with Zumi today!

About A Little R&R Animal Sanctuary - Elgin

About Our Rescue Group...

A Little R & R is happy to join the animal-loving community to help make a difference in the lives of pets both locally and internationally. The ultimate goal of A Little R & R is to have a facility to offer sanctuary to those pets that have been forgotten - perhaps less adoptable, not as cute, getting older, passed around too many homes - they will find peace with us.

While we work towards this goal, A Little R & R is operating as a small foster-network rescue with the ability to pull pets from high-kill shelters, foster, and adopt to verified individuals. Creating a foster network, rescuing, and adoptions will always be part of A Little R & R's mission.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most fosters surround the area of Elgin IL. Since we work with fosters, meet and greets must be arranged beforehand!

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with an adoption application. We require a reference and home check. Adoption fees range from $85-$225 depending on the pet. Meet-and-greets can be set up by appointment with the foster home.
