Rescue Me ID: 16-12-28-00347Betsy (female)

Beagle Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Betsy, a Beagle Boxer mix approx. 2 years old. Betsy has been a foster dog of ours since August. She has been an easy dog for us and fits well into our home of 2 children, one 9 and one 12 year old. She also gets along great with our 3 extra large dogs. She has never had an accident in our home or chewed on anything. She is crate trained and rides well in our car. My children and my niece just love her! They love to play and snuggle with her. I walk her everyday with my dogs and she does need training on pulling. The longer we have had her, she has started to display some behaviors that we need to work on. She started to greet other ... (Read More)dogs a bit to dominantly, never starting a fight, but just not great social behavior. She has also started to be a bit protective of our house when strangers come over. Nothing that can not be worked on, that is why H.E.L.P. has decided to get her training at Woof Beach in Batavia. I really think that she will make someone or a family a wonderful dog. We just love her and she absolutely loves us. I wanted to post this before she goes through all the training to give someone the chance to maybe bond with her during the process of her training and if not maybe a chance to hear her story and progress. There is more to this story that I would love to share. I am lucky enough to stay connected with most of the people that have adopted the dogs my family has fostered and would be happy to discuss Betsy with anyone interested in giving her a home of her own.

Domestic Cat    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Thierry is a delightful tortie with 'special needs'. Although she has a left rear leg that is weaker than the others, she will still jump up onto the back of a couch or chair for a nap during the day and evening; it may take a few tries! She is very friendly and enjoys laying on or next to her foster family members and especially likes it when her head and neck are scratched. Because of her rear leg weakness using the litter box can be a challenge at times, but with some small adaptations to the box she is successful. Thierry would love to be your companion and she currently lives and plays with a Maltese dog and 3 other cats.

    Paddington was given to me at just one week old. All 4 were sturdy and healthy, but just didn't have a mom. I bottle fed them, and then introduced them to a lactating female named Sunny. Sunny immediately accepted them as her own, even though she had 4 biological babies the same age already. I rotated them so everyone could get their share of the groceries and loving comfort from mom. Sunny had 8 babies! Well, fast forward to December 2014'|. Paddington is the ultimate sweet little girl. Around 6 pounds, she will always be quite small. But don't let that fool you! She is filled with energy and yet very calm and cuddly. It is so funny to ...

She will need low maintenance, having long silky very soft hair, she will need her brushing once a week.

Her needs are simple'|..she would love a quiet home with gentle children over 4, possibly a mellow cat or two, (or his mom or sister) a sunny window, and she is in heaven. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Mouse is a playful, cuddly dark gray tabby. He was found on the streets of Chicago with his 6 litter mates when they were only a few days old. Mouse got his name for being the tiny runt of the litter, but he has grown into a healthy, beautiful kitten. He loves to play with everyone, including dogs, cats, and kids. Mouse learned a lot from his foster dog brother and likes to greet you at the door and follow you around like a dog. Mouse loves attention and would do best in a house with other animals and kids so he is never lonely. He loves having his belly rubbed and purrs all of the time.

He was found with his 6 other litter mates on the streets of Chicago when they were only a few days old. He absolutely loves his dog foster brother and playing with his siblings. He would do best with one of them or another cat to keep him company. He does great with kids, but any younger than 5 years old may startle him. Snow is a playful and gentle sweetheart who is a little skittish. He needs a loving family who is willing to move slowly with him while he warms up to you. He is scared of loud noises and fast movement, but is working on overcoming his fears in his foster home! Snow must be adopted with his sibling Mouse. (Less)

    Missy is my name, sitting in the sunshine is my game. I am always looking for someplace warm to curl up! I have a beautiful soft coat of white and grey fur, and a wonderful purr motor. I've spent most of my young adult life as a stray (I came to H.E.L.P. as a pregnant girl), but now I love the indoor life! I prefer to be an only cat and I get along with mellow dogs. I probably wouldn't be happy in a home with small children or with lots of noise. A quieter home with a lap to curl up in during the evenings would be perfect for me! With a little love and a little patience to let me get used to my new surroundings, I will be a wonderful ... (Read More)companion for you!

    Jazz is a great guy who is looking for his forever person or family after being found as a stray wandering around outside in St. Charles. Jazz follows his foster mom around the house and sits in her lap for attention. His hobbies are looking out the window and eating food. He would prefer to be an only-cat; he just seems annoyed by most of the others, with one exception: Charlie, who is also looking for a home. Jazz could be adopted with his friend or he would be happy as an only-cat. He would prefer a quieter home. To our knowledge, he has never been around young children or dogs.

Domestic Cat    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Daisy is the girl with the beautiful long and silky fur. She was found outside eating what she could find so she is a bit shy and slow to warm up to new people. Once she gets to know you she loves to be held and cuddle and will follow you around the house. She is ok with dogs but is not comfortable around other cats so she would do best being the only pampered furball in the house. She is up to date on her shots and is ready to find a forever home. Because we strive to make both our adoptable pets AND our adopting families as happy as possible long term, we ask a few things from you to get the ball rolling.

Animal ID: 2772BonBon (male)

Italian Greyhound Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    BonBon is a 30 pound Italian greyhound/terrier mix who is approximately 6-8 years old. BonBon ended up at Chicago Animal Care and Control after he was attacked by another dog and his family could not afford his treatment. HELP rescued him from CACC and got him the treatment he needed for his injuries (which thankfully were not serious) and he has healed completely. The vet guessed BonBon's age at 6-8 years although he acts much younger. He is housetrained, does not chew, and sleeps quietly through the night on a dog bed in our bedroom. He gets along well with our medium size dogs. He enjoys running around the yard, playing with dog toys ... (Read More)and curling up on a fuzzy blanket for naps. He loves going for walks and is also going out for runs with me and my two dogs. He does very well and certainly has the energy and stamina for it, running as far as 10 miles. BonBon has very short hair and is not a fan of cold weather. So in addition to fuzzy blankets, BonBon likes to wear sweaters when it is cold and has a couple of coats for outdoors. BonBon was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, which improved when he started taking steroids. He currently takes a half pill every other day (the cost for 100 pills is $26 at Walgreens) and also takes pro biotics once a day. He is also currently eating a prescription dog food that we obtain from the vet. He should be able to be weaned off of that food once he has settled in to his permanent home. Before starting the steroids, BonBon spent most of his days curled up sleeping, often not even wanting to get out of bed. Now BonBon is active and playful, always happy to receive attention, wagging his tail and talking to us. It's obvious that he is a happy dog now that he is feeling so much better. While we hope that BonBon's IBD will remain in control with the steroids and pro biotics, he may always have bouts of diarrhea. As a result, he would be best with someone who is home most of the day or can let him out every 4 hours during the day. BonBon's history left him wary and a little fearful of other dogs. He is nervous when meeting new dogs but once he realizes the dogs are not aggressive, he gets along fine with them. He is a very well behaved dog and is eager to please. BonBon is neutered, micro chipped, and up to date on all of his vaccinations. He is ready to find his own family to love. He has quite a few good years left in him and he is hoping to find someone willing to give an older guy a chance. He is definitely worth it!
