My story

Hawk is a Pointer mix male who was born 8/28/18. He was adopted from us as a pup and is now looking for a new home as he is not doing well in his current home environment. He is currently living with his owners to avoid being returned to a kennel environment. We will be screening applicants for his owners in order to hopefully facilitate a successful adoption! His owners say the following about him...

"Hawk is an intelligent athlete. His speed and aligity is matched by his willingness to please. He'll play fetch for hours and make running around look easy!

He is a true introvert-enjoys people but sometimes people can be overwhelming and will need a soft bed to relax in while company is over. When given time to warm up, he'll paw you for head scratches and nudge you for cuddles. He's curious in nature and is a great problem solver. Although he isn't allowed on the furniture, he loves to curl up next to you but also enjoys a playful wrestling match.

Sunbathing is his jam but don't ask him to cool off in the pool or go out in the rain. He needs an owner who can help protect his boundaries when he is feeling insecure and unsure. The perfect owner will be willing to reinforce the 2+ years of professional training. He is very food driven and loves to please. He heals, comes when called and stays in place and waits when told.

Hawk is crate and house-trained and is trustworthy to be out in the house uncrated in his current environment. He plays well with the dog in his current home, and those in daycare, BUT is leash and barrier reactive to other dogs so will not do well through a fence or on leash. With the right intro and dog personality match he could successfully live with other dogs. He has never lived with cats but will chase small animals so no cats would be best. He lives with small children currently but would really like an adult only (14+) home."

Please email availablepets@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting Hawk and giving him the home he needs!

Additional adoption info

Adoption Requirements • Must be 21 years of age or older to adopt a cat, 23 years of age or older to adopt a dog. • Must provide a copy of your lease agreement or association by laws if you live in an apartment, condo or townhouse • Must provide documents/receipts that specify your cat or dog’s immunizations/required tests are current (rabies, distemper and fecal (+ for dogs- heartworm test and bordetella if adopting a dog) (+ for cats - leukemia test/vaccine if adopting a cat)). We can call your veterinarian to get this information, if you don’t have the documents. If you know they are not current, bring the animals with you and can have them updated by the animal hospital that houses HSP. • All adults in the household must be present and co sign the adoption agreement. • All your currently owned dogs/cats must be spayed or neutered. This is a non-negotiable requirement. • Heartworm prevention for dogs must also be purchased at the time of adoption and prices vary depending on the size of the animal being adopted. • Puppies under 6 months old are required to sign up for a puppy obedience class. ($89 deposit required, refundable upon completion) Each Adoption Includes: • Spay or neuter surgery Vaccines current to the date of adoption *: • Rabies vaccine • Bordatella vaccine for dogs • Canine Influenza vaccine for dogs • Booster for canine and feline distemper and several other dangerous diseases • Fecal test • 1st deworming • Heartworm test (dogs +6 months old) • Leukemia test for cats • Capstar flea treatment • Microchip identification implant * Boosters required for puppies and kittens (depending on age) POST adoption are the responsibility of the pet owner. Application Process Once you have decided on an animal, you will be provided with an Adoption Questionnaire which requires name, address, phone numbers and asks some questions about your household, why you want a pet and how you plan to care for it. The Adoption Questionnaire needs to be approved by an authorized humane society volunteer. If an authorized volunteer is on site, that occurs quickly and if you’ve provided all required information on applicable lease agreements/association by laws and current immunizations/tests for any existing pets, you may be able to take your new friend home immediately. If an authorized volunteer is not on site, you’ll receive a phone call when the status is determined. Adoption Donations Adoption donations for adult dogs range from $59 to $399 and puppies from $159 to $599. Adoption donations for adult cats range from $29 to $99 and kittens from $59 to $399. We are a private pet rescue and are not affiliated with any government or national organization, and as such our adoption donations are set to cover as much of the cost for the spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, tests and medical care of our animals that is realistic. We lose money on every animal we take in as our adoption donations are less than what caring for the animals actually costs us. We ask more for puppies, kittens and purebred adults to help cover the expenses of the older mixed breed animals for which we receive minimal donations and incur significant debt. However, even at our highest prices, puppies and kittens are still half the price of pet store animals AND our animals are already altered and up to date on vaccinations. Post Adoption Care If you choose to give one of our deserving homeless animals a second chance at a good life, a New Pet Health Assurance Program provided by our partner veterinary clinics is available. This will cover the cost of treating shelter related illnesses should one occur, for 60 days after your adoption date up to $500. If you do not purchase this coverage, you would assume total financial responsibility for any needed medical treatment immediately after you adopt. Since 2000, we have placed over 10,000 animals into loving homes. Each one of these animals was given shelter, food, medical aid and vaccinations and time to find the right home. Our doctors mended mutilated limbs and cured many illnesses so that these animals could get a second chance at good lives. We have grown and now operate out of 4 locations, not all of them in Plainfield. In 2008 we changed our name from the Humane Society of Plainfield to Help Save Pets, still HSP. What exactly does HSP do? We rescue desirable and healthy adult dogs and cats from pounds and shelters in mostly rural areas. • Many government funded pounds and shelters, especially in rural areas, have an abundance of homeless animals and scarce cage space to house them. The demand for pets from these shelters is low and the kill rate is high. We rescue puppies and kittens that most rescues will not. • Many shelters, including other no kill rescues, will NOT take puppies or kittens under 3 months old because of their susceptibility to illness. Most are sadly put to death. We rescue dogs and cats with curable health problems. • Many adult animals with curable health problems (some serious, including Heartworm positive dogs) are restored to health and offered for adoption. We take pregnant and nursing moms with their babies. • We find foster homes for them to raise their young in a safe environment. Pounds put these moms and their babies down immediately because of the risk of illness, extra work and additional space involved with caring for them. We work closely with Will County and Joliet Township Animal Control to help reduce the kill rate of animals locally. We sponsor an Illinois Dept of Agriculture Humane Investigator, who serves our geographic area and investigates cruelty complaints. We offer training and behavioral counseling to assist in the transition of adopted animals into new homes.
