Meet Gus Gus!
Gus is a purebred Olde English Bulldogge, and is around 2.5 years old. OEBs make great companions, and while they do have a wonderful sense of humor, they are also pretty lazy and easy going. 
Gus is a handsome fellow that is currently in desperate need surgery- he has a condition called Entropion, which causes his eyelids to fold inward, making the hair on (what should be) the outside of the eyelid rub against his eye, causing severe irritation and conjunctivitis, poor guy!
He is currently being treated with antibiotic eye ointment, but that will not correct the issue- it will only help to alleviate some of the irritation in the eye, and provide some protection from the hair scratching the eye. If left untreated (ointment and surgery), it can lead to scarring on the eye, and may lead to blindness.
Because of the severity of his case, we are considering him in URGENT need of surgery
, and have started a GoFundMe page to help with his surgery costs.

We ask that even if you are not able to make a contribution, please do share his information- by sharing his page, you can help advocate for contributions to help get his surgery done as quickly as possible! 
Surgery date and information will be posted as soon as we have half of the surgery costs covered so we can schedule it.


Once approved, you will be able to schedule a meeting with an available animal for our upcoming adoption event!

  • Please note that because our shelter is located in southern Illinois, about 3 hours south of Champaign, our animals are available for adoption in Champaign only during scheduled events, and are available in Murphysboro, IL between events, by appointment.
  • Event information can be found on our home page.

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.

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.
