Kit was at the end of her time at an animal control. She was nervous and scared, and didn't warm up to humans in that environment quickly. When they ran out of space they pleaded for a rescue to save her because they all just adored her. Our foster family adores her too! They planned to adopt her in fact but she has become less and less happy with the other dog and cat in the home and it has been decided she just wants to be a princess and not share her home with other pets. She lives with a toddler and a teenager right now, and does wonderfully with both. She is a quiet dog, who is nervous in new situations, loves to play in the yard with her human and take walks. She is housebroken and good in a crate. Would you like to meet Kit to see if she would be the dog for you? Please fill out an application to adopt her as the first step: www.arrowdogrescue.org/application. All of our dogs are in foster homes in families not in a shelter. Kit's adoption fee is $275 and she is being fostered in Central IL.
Kit , Australian Kelpie & German Shepherd Dog Mix has been shared from Shelter Exchange.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website. We call all references listed including veterinarian, personal, and condo board or landlord, and our goal is to approve application within 5 days. You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at arrowdogrescue@gmail.com to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to arrowdogrescue@gmail.com or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
