Welcome to the MARS family, little man!

He is a 2 1/2 year old Papillon/Chihuahua mix.
This little guy has REALLY been through some serious life changes in the last month. Disconnected from his original home, he was picked up as a stray, and immediately rushed into emergency surgery to repair a dislocated hip joint. (It is still uncertain his he sustained the injury in the first place.) Unfortunately, nobody ever came forward to claim him so he had to sit at the vets office for almost a month while he healed. Although his hip was repaired, he wasn't worked with to strengthen the hip so his muscle just shriveled. (In this amount if time, he should have been using it again.) He will try and can bare weight, he just prefers not to at the moment. Here at MARS, we are dedicated to the rehabilitation of the animals in our program so when we were asked to take on his recovery, we couldn't pass up the chance to help him. He is incredibly sweet and just wants your attention. He will be available for adoption in the near future but for now, we are going to work with him to get that leg moving again! His smile says it all... He's a happy boy that is eager to be in a happy home! If you are interested in meeting Crash, please visit our website at: to apply!

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.
