Jake's Story...
We found Jake wandering the streets and saved him from being hit by a car!!! He had been wandering the streets for quite some time because we could see his ribs. He had to be someone's pet because he was neutered but unfortunately they didn't microchip him so we can't reunite him with his owner. Our vet estimates he is about 18 months old. And about 49 pounds. He LOVES kids. All he wanted to do was lick my two year old's face when we were at the vet. He is great with other dogs too. Super Love Bug!!! Please give Jake a forever home before the holidays and that way we can take in another Homeless animal. Jake has put on the weight he needed to gain back. He is neutered, microchipped (by our vet), up to date on his shots and heartworm tested (negative). We will add pictures very soon. His adoption fee of $250 offsets the cost of his vetting and helps support the animals in the care of HART. Jake is being fostered in Oswego. If you would like to meet and possibly adopt Jake please call Jill at 815-919-2587. An adoption application and home visit are necessary prior to adoption. Thank you for choosing to adopt.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Plainfield American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plainfield 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 Plainfield 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 American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
