Meet Kathy!
DOB 7/26/2015. Weight 9-10lbs
Possible Hound / Spaniel Mix

A sweet dog named Katie Ann that was abandoned and left to fend for herself in Alabama. What is worse than that is she was also about to be a momma. Having puppies, in even the best of shelters, is not a healthy thing for the puppies or their mom. We decided to bring her to Illinois so that she could have her puppies in a safe and loving foster home.

The ride to freedom got off to a great start and everyone was settling in for the 12 hour cruise. A couple of hours in, Katy Ann decided that she finally felt safe and began to deliver her beautiful babies! She was a wonderful mother and took great care of her puppies until they arrived many hours later safe and sound with 5 additional passengers!

Kevin, Kenny, Kato, Kipling, and Kathy are now ready to venture out and find their forever families. They may have some Hound or Spaniel or who knows what other breeds in their DNA. What we do know is that they are sweet, smart, and adorable and deserve all of the good things that a forever family will give them!

Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies.

Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a “teen” or adult dog.

Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.

We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details.

Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.
