1100 SOULS SAVED SINCE 2001!!!

The dogs and puppies listed below are either in foster care or in shelters across the Midwest. MANY are in danger of being put to sleep because the shelters are over-crowded and the dogs have limited time. If you are interested in adopting one of these URGENT dogs or puppies- please contact the shelter directly with the contact information provided. While we have limited foster homes- we feel that it is our obligation to list as many dogs for help as we can.

Illinois Birddog Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to saving, transporting, vetting, fostering, and adopting homeless American Field bred Pointers and English Setters- a group of canines commonly known as BIRDDOGS.. All of the dogs in our foster care program were strays or owner surrenders pulled from shelters from all over the United States. Perhaps some weren't winning enough in Field Trials, maybe some became too old to hunt or to have litters of puppies, but many were gun shy and most had suffered from neglect or abuse. Sadly, all were in danger of being euthanized - never reaching their full potential until we pulled them to safety. Thru patience, kindness and commitment, these dogs do regain their confidence in the IBR program and many are back working in the field to the joy of their adopters.

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in adopting a pet from our rescue, please fill out an online adoption application.

We do require homes with fenced in yards and non-smoking homes. Our priority is finding loving pet homes first, but if we are able to test our birdier dogs for their hunting abilities, we will place our dogs in pet/hunting homes. ALL DOGS MUST LIVE INDOORS.
