Gatsby-ADOPT ION PENDING!'s Story...
01-12-09 Gatsby has arrived!! He is a very cute Beagle/Setter mix and a cute one at that. He is probably 4-5 months old and weighs in at about 25lbs. He was in an over-crowded shelter in Kentucky. His foster mom report that he is super playful, lovable, & already knows how to sit. It is obvious that he had been in a loving home before & someone had worked with him. He got right up on the couches too. He loves the snow. We do anticipate many applications for him.

Due to the fact that many of our dogs have come from shelters or abuse or neglect situations, and unless we have tested these dogs on upland birds and feel they are confident and ready to work as a hunter with families where they will be trained with kindness and patience, we will only adopt to pet homes.

All adoptions include vaccinations, deworming, microchips, spaying or neutering, collar, leash and an information adoption packet. All IBR dogs are crate trained, housebroken, socialized with other dogs and loved on by their human foster parents. Adoption fees are used to cover vetting expenses and special need dogs' vetting care. All adopters must also have safe fenced in yards and be non-smoking homes.

If you are interested in adopting this pet, please fill out an online adoption application.

8 Ways You Can Save A Life

Help support IBR with the purchase of a 2009 12 Month Wall Calendar and choose from Pointers, Setters, Hunting Dogs, Mutts & Friends and Puppies. All of the dogs and puppies featured in these calendars would have been euthanized in shelters across the Mid-West had IBR not stepped in to save them. Your support can really make a difference!!

Check out our new Ebay Store with fundraising shirts featuring several birddog breeds like Pointers, Setters, GSP's, Vizslas, and Labradors. All purchases will help off set our high vetting expenses and may also help pay for food for some of our long term senior and special needs foster dogs in rescue. Please click on the Ebay icon for more info.

Make a donation or sponsor a homeless dog. Illinois Birddog Rescue has always prided itself in not turning away any sick and injured dogs; animals that most shelters would have euthanized. We have saved many dogs with heartworm, tick borne illnesses, broken legs, missing legs, blind dogs, a new deaf puppy, dogs suffering from Parvo and especially senior dogs that may need expensive health care to help them get ready for adoption. In February of 2006, in one weekend, we brought in 20+ dogs from the Boat Mountain Tragedy, and that depleted our emergency funds. Please help us continue to help those birddogs that have suffered terrible abuse and suffering by making an online donation here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gatsby-ADOPT ION PENDING!, a Wood Dale Beagle/English Setter puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/English Setter for sale in Wood Dale, or seeking a Beagle/English Setter puppy from a breeder in Wood Dale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wood Dale 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 Wood Dale 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 Beagle/English Setter breeders who help with Beagle/English Setter rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wood Dale paves the way for another one to be saved.
