Hi, my name is Amelia and I am waiting for a family. I was in a rescue in Arkansas since I was a tiny puppy but no one adopted me so Arrow came and got me because they think someone who looks for dogs with them will want me. I sure hope so! I have never had a forever family yet. I am a typical 7 mo old Shepherd mix puppy. My mama was either a German or a Dutch Shepherd, and I heard someone say they think my daddy is a Doberman or Rottweiler. I don't know what any of that means, I just know that I am smart, funny, energetic, i love to play with dogs, and am fine with outside cats at my foster home. I am house trained, about 40 lbs, and I am a friendly, sweet dog. I would make an excellent family pet! I prefer a fenced yard, but if not I need a family who is going to take me on lots of long walks. If I get enough exercise, I am the perfect dog! Want to meet me in Central Illinois? Please fill out an application at this website and my people will email you to talk more!

I have all of my shots up to date including rabies, am microchipped, have been spayed, fecal tested, and have had flea/heart worm preventative every month. You must have all of your current pets up to date on rabies, heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered to add me to your family.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website. We call all references listed including veterinarian, personal, and condo board or landlord, and our goal is to approve application within 5 days. You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
