Miss Edith: will be 11 years old! Eleven and in need of a forevermore home. I was told by her previous owners that they got her at 12 weeks old and threw her in an outside pen. She was never spayed, she was never taken in the house to hang on a couch or bed, she was never given heartworm prevention. Because of this she is heartworm positive, she was underweight, and she was still having heat cycles. BUT NO LONGER.... she has her very own bed at her foster home as well as she has been spayed and is feeling much better. She is still heartworm positive but we are doing a method of slow kill on her. She runs and plays and loves her foster siblings as well as human kiddos. She is very sweet and just needs a place to hang and be loved for the rest of her days. Can you offer Edith that forever? Her adoption fee is $250. To start our process please fill out an application online. 3/21/2019

Mirah: is such a doll. Spayed, vaccinated she found herself in rescue after her family fell on hard times!

To make her part of your forever home fill out an application at application3/21/2019

Mac: UPDATE: Has has started to settle into his foster home and lives to play with the other dogs as well as snuggle in the couch or bed. 3/3/19 Mac- this 8 years old, great with other dogs, very sweet and loves attention. He's good for walks has learned how to walk nicely on the leash, and likes to go for car rides. Mac is house trained and will follow you from room to room. Sadly Mac was returned due to severe allergies in the family. This sweet old man is just looking for a place to rest his head for the rest of his days. Are you that home? For more information or to adopt the sweet guy, Feel free to fill out an adoption application. His adoption fee is $400 .3/21/2019

Odin: Sweet Odin is 6 years old. He was a breeder dog turned over at an auction type setting and then relinquished to Illinois Saint Bernard Rescue. Odin is shy upon meeting but very sweet and wants to please. He would do best in a quiet home with another dogc close to his size. He is crate trained and working on house training although if watched seems to do fine. His adoption fee is $400 to cover his vetting which was already done. He is current on vaccines, neutered , microchipped and ready for his foreve after story! Is that you? Can you give Odin a home of his own? A fenced yard is required for his adoption. He would also benefit from some basic obedience training! 2/9/2019

Boss: Sweet Boss lived on a chain most of his ten years. He was allowed inside his owners home when it was to cold. His owner lost his home and contacted Illinois Saint Bernard Rescue who gladly stepped in and took this guy in. He is ten years old and heartworm positive. He has acclimated to full time house dog very nicely and is living great in a foster home. Even though Boss is ten he is looking for his forever home to live out his days. His adoption fee is $250 just to cover a small part of all of his vetting that had to be done to make sure he was healthy. Would you like to add a sweet old man to your home? We have not tested him with dogs yet because he had to have a couple of extractions because his mouth was sore but we are confident he will be fine with another dog. 2/9/2019

Benny: This sweet little nugget came in with his Saint Bernard momma from a neglect case. He was urine stained and walking down on his wrists from poor nutrition. We have spent the last couple of months doing bandages on his front legs trying to help correct the breakdown from no nutrition. He is now 5 months and doing so much better. He is working on house training and doing well. He is eating three strong meals a day and growing like a weed. He is good with kids and other dogs. Most likely good with cats also and learning to walk on a leash. He is Saint Bernard and something and we think he will be medium sized boy when done growing. He will be neutered prior to adoption and microchipped. He will require basic obedience upon adoption, and his adoption fee is $500. For more information feel free to fill out an application online to get our process started. 12/19/2018
