PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING OUR CAUSE
Can't adopt right now? There are many other ways you can help!
If you order from Amazon.com, you can help ISR orphans simply by designating ISR as your charity recipient through their SMILE program (free at smile.amazon.com). Detailed information is included on the left side of this page.
How about fostering for ISR? People are abandoning GSPs faster than we can rescue them...especially when we don't have fosters to take them in. Regardless of how many foster homes we have, it seems we are always in desperate need of more. Please consider fostering…even short-term fostering is helpful.
Can't foster? We also need help transporting our rescues, and recruiting new ISR fosters/volunteers. If you're interested in one of these opportunities, please complete the appropriate application found under the VOLUNTEER tab on this page.
Still looking for something? Monetary donations are always needed and welcomed. Please help spread the word about ISR...you never know who is waiting in the wings for an opportunity to volunteer and contribute to such a worthwhile cause.

ISR NEEDS DEDICATED FOSTER HOMES
Every orphan listed on our Adoptable Dogs page is in rescue, instead of a scary shelter...or worse, because someone decided to open their home and heart and foster. Fostering is our greatest need, and we can only save as many dogs as we have foster homes available. We especially need foster homes in the Chicagoland area, although we welcome homes from downstate Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. Fosters prepare the rescue dog for their forever home. We provide support, cover all vet care and other expenses. Look on the website under Volunteer for more info. on Volunteer Fostering. Interested or have questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our future rescue dogs thank you from the bottom of their hearts!
