Thor's Story...
Adopted 4/20/2017

1/8/2017 Update:
Thor is now in a foster home and doing great. He's turned into a lap dog. He actually played really well with the male dog that was over at the foster's homes house. He would do better with more submissive dogs though. Not sure the sex matters, just more submissive

He is around 5 to 6 years old. He does okay with some female dogs. He loves to play and can sometimes play a little rough. He would do better with children over the age of 10. He likes to lay around on his bed and chew on him favorite toy. He LOVES to go on walks. No cats. He has been at animal control for almost 3 months. He came in with Boo and the 6 puppies.

Most of the animals listed on here are in foster homes, but some are still residing at the Granite City Animal Control until they can be adopted or there is a foster home opening.

Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more fosters.

If you are interested in fostering, the foster application is located here:

Pound Pets volunteers cleans the animal control building, we are the caregivers for the animals brought in. Once they come through the door, they become our responsibility. We photograph all animals and post to the Pound Pets Facebook page. We provide them clean kennels, beds, blankets, toys, treats, outside play time, walks and human interaction. We try to comfort the scared, keep the high-energy ones exercised and provide plenty of love and affection to make their time at animal control as less stressful as possible.

Sometimes they get reclaimed by their families and sometimes they don't. If they don't it is our responsibility to find the adopters, fosters or rescues to save them from euthanasia.

We get in sick and injured animals as well. They do not sit in their kennels or cages needing veterinary care. Once we see the need for care they are taken to the vet. Sometimes the illness or injury is minor and the city will cover the bill, Other times when it's not, we do. We do all of this on our own dime. We buy the food, the beds, the blankets, the toys, and all the other things that go into care for the animals. Sometimes things are donated and that is wonderful!! We pay the medical bills that the city doesn't. As with most animal controls, there is a limit on what they will do or cover. At Pound Pets, there is no limit. Broken Bones, Surgery, Parvo, Heartworm, etc., if the animal has a chance the animal is given that chance. This is not a shelter but an animal control.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thor, a Jerseyville Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for sale in Jerseyville, or seeking a Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Jerseyville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jerseyville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Jerseyville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Staffordshire Bull Terrier breeders who help with Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jerseyville paves the way for another one to be saved.
