Jillie's Story...
Jillie is a senior sweetheart. This poor gal was found as a stray and ended up at an overcrowded Chicago shelter. The shelter intake paperwork identified her as a Boxer mix, about 9 years old. Angels on Wheels Rescue saved her from the harsh reality of shelter statistics at the end of July and placed this wonderful girl in an Oswego foster home.

Her most favorite things involve food and companionship. She loves people and loves to be near the family and activities. Her handling temperament is excellent for everything from ears to tail. Has absolutely not displayed any form of resource guarding and takes treats gently. Jillie is not phased by any household noises, thunder storms, lawn mowers, passing cars or motorcycles. Enjoys riding in the car and looking out the window, prefers riding shotgun. Most times she loose leads walks. She will pull when she thinks we may be going for a car ride or something else exciting, or if that unexpected rabbit cuts her off. We haven't found any favorite toys or retrieve games that interests her yet. She does like interactive learning; has been working on sit, down, give 5 and touch. Jillie is living with larger dogs at her foster house and is polite with greetings. She is content laying by the others around the house, walks nicely in a group and enjoys some dog play games outside. She has not been feline or small dog evaluated. Jillie is house trained however she does experience some urinary incontinence more often when sleeping and occasionally when she is excited.. She has been through a lot of changes, procedures and infections. She has had fewer incontinent episodes when water is available at all times, allowed more frequent potty breaks during awake hours. Jillie has fearful and self destructive behaviors when in confined spaces, especially crates. This is a process of reassurance and behavior modifications to help Jillie succeed. She has made positive steps already and just really needs a chance to feel safe and secure.

She has received full vetting including blood work - good, heartworm test – neg, stool parasite check – neg, vaccinations, spaying and extensive dental work with extractions. Treatment for a urinary infection. Multiple lump removal with benign biopsy results. Treatment for ear infection. Microchipped. Her diet is softer consistency and receives an incontinence supplement.

Jillie is a complete doll. I often find her snuggling on her blanket with a big smile and just wagging her tail at nothing other than she is just a happy girl. She is very responsive to positive reinforcement, food lures, verbal corrections. She is happy to learn and eager to be loving family member.

We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls.
The adoption fee is $150 and includes the neuter, abdominal ultrasound and dental which is now done, vaccinated for DHPP, rabies vaccination, heartworm and stool parasite testing, received Heartgard, microchip, he comes with a leash and collar, and your 1st vet visit is free if through one of our participating vets.
We must have an application, sometimes a home visit, reference checked including the vet of current and/or past cats and/or dogs, to approve an application. At the meet and greet, we will need to meet all members of the family including any four legged doggies in your home to assure everyone gets alone.

About Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue NFP

About Our Rescue Group...


Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3), non-for-profit, state licensed organization. We are composed of animal-loving volunteers that work vigorously to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals. We are dedicated to finding and saving neglected and unwanted animals from high kill shelters on death row to give them a second chance for life.

Our purpose is to keep these babies out of already crowded Animal Control Facilities, to provide them with proper medical treatment and then wonderful homes. If you need assistance with Spaying and Neutering your animals, please contact us.

We can't save these babies without your help. Please consider fostering, helping with transporting animals, volunteering by feeding and watering the kittens at Petco, helping with adoption days or donating; either monetary, old pet carriers, blankets, food, newspaper, paper towels, toys, the list is endless. Most importantly please, please spay and neuter all of your pets. It takes two to have a litter.

We may not be able to change change the world, but together, we can change the world for some.

Thank you for viewing our animals, considering adoption instead of buying and for your generousity.

Please see our website for more information about the adoption process.

Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a pupy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue. Thank you.
