Rescue Me ID: 18-02-18-00234Atlas (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Atlas is a dog of the world, hence his given name. My daughter rescued him strolling down a busy street in LaMirada, CA. She cared and fell in love with this sweet pup, but as a student could not care for him. We put him on a flight and I (mom) tried to care for him, but do not have time to train having another dog (Bischon). Atlas is a smart, sweet little buddy that will be a long-time part of the family. He needs a great home with a lot of love and a fenced yard. He's just over a year and still having accidents in the house, but with my schedule, no fencing, it's not surprising. My daughter is also open to temporary foster care ... (Read More)through May 2018. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-15-00269Hercules (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hercules! Our little demigod is small but mighty! He's an 18 month old Jack Russell Terrier mix who arrived at ACL from another shelter where he had been surrendered for being 'too active.' Hercules is definitely active, but we'd never give him up in a million years! Herc is a total comedian - he loves to jump three feet in the air, walk on his back legs like a circus pup, and run around like a wild man! Hercules is excellent with other dogs, and his dream home would definitely have another pup to cuddle up to and play with all day. He's still a young whippersnapper who likes to chew slippers if given the chance, but he also loves toys, so ... (Read More)he's easy to please. Herc still has accidents occasionally, but he's improving every day, and he does well in his crate. He loves everyone big and small, and he's totally ready to be your rowdy copilot! Hercules does well with kids of any age - as long as he gets lots of attention, play, and exercise, he's happy to snuggle in for a cuddle at the end of the day! Hercules is a vocal dude, so he needs a freestanding home where his barkiness won't bother the neighbors. (Less)

Again, the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Saturday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 8:30 to sign in.

After 9am, on Saturday mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 8:30-9am.

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Senior

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Charley, an adorable, sweet, feisty 12 pound, 12+ year old male Jack Russell. This little fellow is a gentle and loving dog and deserves a warm and loving home for his golden years. This sweet boy was found as a stray in rural KY. He's got several scars on his body and has very few teeth left, so we are guessing he has not had a very easy time in life so far. We are hoping to find a home that will treasure him and love him like he deserves for his retirement years! Charley may be up there in age, but like most JRT's he still has lots of personality, spunk, and love to give! Charley loves attention and affectionate and will make a nice ... (Read More)little lap dog for a household with a quiet lifestyle. He is being fostered with other dogs and does well with them. He does seem to be a bit hard of hearing and startles easily when he's sleeping, so he would not be an ideal match for a home with very young children. He is quiet and well behaved in the home and is crate trained and house trained. This charming fellow will bring a lot of happiness and love to one lucky home, could it be yours?! Charley's adoption donation is $200. He was recently vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. He has also just had a dental cleaning and senior blood panel done and is on heartworm and flea prevention. He is a healthy senior! Charley is eager to meet you! He is currently being fostered in Chicago and can be seen by appointment once an application has been received and approved. If interested in meeting him, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com 'ۢ Charlie's adoption donation is $200. This donation helps to cover his neuter, initial vaccines, initial worming and microchip. Pal's Place relies solely on donations to care for the pets in our care. Your donation also helps save other animals like Charlie from euthanasia.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ok, so he is 12 years old but don't let that fool you-Cooper has a lot of vim and vigor! What a perfect combination, the spunk to keep us and go for walks and be active with his family, but the maturity to not be over the top exuberant. Cooper likes the finer things in life whether it be a brisk walk in the crisp winter air or a warm nap on a snuggly blanket, and he is not slouch when it comes time for a nice dinner! Cooper was given up by his family due to his seasonal allergies. Apparently they flare up a little in the fall and spring. He gets a little itchy but nothing to serious. We gave him a soothing bath and if it gets bad a little ... (Read More)benadryl helps. We have many dogs with similar issues, my own bulldog is 10 x worse, thats a bulldog for you. He is a happy guy, loves his people and is doing well with the other dogs. At first he was not too happy about the rowdiness of others but has learned to accept it. He will do well in a more peaceful home than ours. He probably had a nice quiet life and does appreciate quiet times. His adoption fee is $99. Please email Kristine at joysparrpows@gmail.com. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Jack Russell in Illinois
    Jack Russell Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Jack Russell Terrier is a witty, highly intelligent and trainable working dog. Jack Russells are cheeky, entertaining pets. Jack Russells do well with considerate children but do not like to be teased. Jack Russells need a dominant owner experienced in firm obedience training. The Jack Russell Terrier has strong hunting instincts and should not be trusted with small animals. This scrappy Terrier may fight with dogs with which he is not socialized from an early age. Jack Russells can live in an apartment but need plenty of exercise and do best with a yard. Jack Russells can climb and dig under fences, and need to be kept on a leash when walking.
