Meet Bella!
This puppy is one of a litter of 5 that are in need to loving homes. They are very sweet and curious puppies that would do well in moderately active/active homes. They would be great additions to families with kids or other pets. 
These poor babies had a very rough start in life- they were turned in by their owner after they could not afford to care for the babies. These puppies were filthy, severely infested with fleas, had sores all over their bodies, ringworm, and a severe parasite load. Due to all of these issues, they were also in a lot of pain, and very dehydrated. These babies were nothing but skin and bones, and we were not certain that they would be able to overcome all of the health issues, however, they were very strong puppies, and were excellent ICU patients, and accepted all of the medical care without a fuss! 
They have completed their intensive care/treatment for all of their ailments, and are now ready to find forever homes!

About Midwest Animal Rescue Service

About Our Shelter...

Midwest Animal Rescue Service (MARS) is a NO-KILL, state-licensed organization (IL Dept. of Agriculture #13839) that finds loving homes for as many animals in need as possible. The animals in our program were rescued from either high-kill facilities (where animals are in danger of being put to sleep), or neglectful owners that are not providing proper care to their pets.

WHEN CONSIDERING ADOPTION, please check into what is included in the adoption fees. We hold all animals in our care for a minimum of 21 days to properly screen for health conditions, and to provide as much pre-adoption care as possible.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption Event information is posted at! Our events are held regularly at:
Pet Supplies Plus
2821 W. Kirby Avenue
Champaign, Illinois 61821

Animals are cared for at our shelter in southern Illinois, so animals are available for adoption between events in Murphysboro, IL, and in Champaign, Illinois, during scheduled events.
