All dogs found on the website are at the specified location and can be viewed at that location. We ask that all your resident dogs and family members come into the adoption center to meet the rescue you want to adopt. We can hold a rescue for 24 hours for a meet and greet in the specified location. We reserve the right to require an application and home visit on a case by case basis.
Riley (AKA Finnegan) - Hound mix
Riley is a young male hound mix that we rescued. He either had a foot deformity from birth or it got infected to the point of him losing toes and not being able to use his leg. Due to the severe atrophy and damage done we needed to remove his leg. He will now be able to rebuild the muscles and after rehabbing he should be free to lead a happy and healthy life. Riley is just one of 3 dogs from this last transport that needed surgery. His medical costs are estimated at this time to be $1000 and we desperately need the donations for his and other medical needs we have incurred this month alone. You can donate several ways. We have a YouCaring link, our website has a donation tab, you can visit our adoption centers and drop off a check or you can attend a Casino Entertainment fundraiser on April 9th we are hosting together with Heart’s In Motion, an organization that helps children in need. All donations are tax deductible as well as greatly appreciated and needed.
Alsip To The Rescue (ATTR) strives as a rescue to make sure that when our adopters take home their new rescue they feel they have the support and access to all resources which ATTR can provide. If you want to learn how you can set your new rescue up to succeed and blend in with your family come to our Meet The Trainer sessions each weekend. We will give you tips on what to do when you first bring home a new rescue. Saturday at Noon in St John and Sunday at Noon in Frankfort are free Meet The Trainer sessions with more free sessions to be added during the week soon. Fill out an application in the Get Involved section to meet our rescues. www.alsiptotherescue.org
