In memory of...

Hope, Strength & Courage

Three badly maimed pointer/setter mixes Hope, Strength & Courage were patiently nursed back to health by their shelter. Illinois Birddog Rescue is taking them under their wing, as their time was running out. Continuing vet care will be necessary for these three, especially for Hope, who is still struggling with skin issues.

Donation made by Ed Kaufman:
An extremely generous donation was made by Mr. Kaufman. You are a true rescue angel and this sweet trio and Illinois Birddog Rescue thank you so much for your contribution.

Donations for Dorothy

Little Dorothy was sitting at a Michigan shelter with not much hope at rescue, as she’s an older gal with wounds from frostbite and a huge tumor. IBR thought she should have something to look forward to and vet tests show hope that surgery could actually give her a brighter future and hope a forever home. Sadly Dorothy did not survive your surgery. IBR cremated her and gave her ashes to foster mom Lisa Floros in memory of her loving care of sweet Dorothy.

Illinois Birddog Rescue, Inc is making a difference in our community. I think Kathy just found us by a random search on petfinder and she saw our plea for help.

Thanks a heap- Kathy!Kathy was also personally thanked by three of the buck funds puppies (Gidget, Jersey Girl and Wheaties) who gave her sloppy puppy kisses.
Kathy later wrote:
Hi Lisa,
Thank you so much for the pictures! I can't tell you the
feelings that went through me when I looked at those shots.
I am so happy those babies have a shot at a wonderful life.
I will be sure to share them with the students at our school
tomorrow and let them know that what they did made a
