English Pointer - Lou - Medium - Adult - Male - Dog
Lou is a very handsome Black and White American Field bred English Pointer. He was pulled from an over- crowded shelter in Indiana. He is safe in temporary foster care and having a great time playing with his foster family, but we would like to move him to the Chicago area to get his follow up vetting done and get him ready for his forever home!!
If you would like to help foster, please fill out our Foster application <http://www.illinoisbirddogrescue.org/foster_app.html> .
All IBR dogs in foster care are learning to be 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. Our adoption guidelines also require non-smoking homes and safe fenced in yards. If you are interested in adopting this pet through our rescue organization, please go to the Adopting A Friend <http://www.illinoisbirddogrescue.org/adoption_procedure.html> section to read about our pre-adoption policies and vetting protocols.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal so we can continue our work helping save these homeless hunters and other abused and neglected dogs and puppies! We have a long way to go and any amount --big or small--will make a huge difference especially if the dog or puppy is in an area where they use gas chambers to euthanize. We see the worst that humans can do to defenceless animals- but with your donation- we will be able to do more to end the suffering of many frightened dogs and puppies. <http://www.firstgiving.com/ibr>
Others Ways You Can Make a Difference
Shop for 2011 custom calendars, mugs and T-shirts at our Caf Press <http://www.cafepress.com/ibrescue/> fundraising website and choose merchandise featuring Pointers, Setters, Hunting Dogs or Friendly Mutts. All of our calendar stars are rescued dogs that would have been euthanized in shelters across the Mid-West had IBR not stepped in to save them. Your support does make a difference!! Help offset the high cost of our vetting bills via the Petfinder.com Sponsor-A-Pet link. 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 <http://boatmountianclan.blogspot.com/> , and that depleted our emergency funds. Your donation will not go unnoticed. In addition to helping save lives, when you donate your name will be added to the Illinois Birddog Rescue Donations and Rescue Sponsor List <http://www.ibrdonations.blogspot.com/> .
