Meet Zena!
Zena and Zelda are two sweet Pointer mix puppies (we do not know what they are moxed with, but may have some Lab in the mix) that are looking for loving homes. 
These sweethearts were transferred from an animal control after their owner's dog had a litter and they could not care for the puppies. Zelda and Zena were the last two left after their siblings had been hit by cars (the puppies were being left outside unattended), how terrible! Zelda and Zena were infested with fleas and ticks and were absolutely terrified, and we cannot blame them! They got a thorough but gentle grooming to remove the fleas and ticks, and were given oral flea/tick prevention. Their skin was also in rough shape from fly bites, which made it raw and susceptible to infection. 
These pups have been treated for their physical ailments and are finally ready to find families that will show them the love that they need, and what it feels like to be part of a family. Because these pups were not treated like members of a family before, they will need help with socializing, and a family that is willing to take them out and about and meet lots of new people and pets. They are shy when first meeting new people, but warm up quickly and want to cuddle!

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1: Complete your online adoption application at

Step 2: Get your application's status in your email within 1 business day.

Step 3: As long as your application is approved, you will be able to place an available animal on reservation for our upcoming event.

You are, of course, welcome to attend any event without a reservation to meet available animals, but a reservation will guarantee that a specific pet will be held for you for the event. Event details can always be found at

Our puppy adoption fee includes: ALL 3 puppy shots, at least three rounds of deworming medication, fecal testing (parasite screening), two tests for Canine Parvovirus, microchipping, along with a Free exam and 50% spay/neuter discount through our partner vet, Arnett Animal Hospital in Wheeling, IL, or Animal Hospital at the Crossing in Champaign, IL.

Our adoption fees are specified in the description of each animal, along with what is included in the fee (everything that is included has already been done by the time the pet attends the event).
