Central Illinois Sheltie Rescue


What exactly is "Rescue"?   

Most Breeds have their own Breed Rescue.  This is a group that KNOWS their breed, better than any regular animal shelter.
Central Illinois Sheltie Rescue, organized in 1998, knows Shelties.   We know their quirks, their common illnesses, their behavior, and their needs.   Whenever a Sheltie must be rehomed, Sheltie Rescue is the BEST CHOICE.    We give the best breed specific care, and we find the best breed specific homes.

When a dog comes into our program, they start by visiting our Veterinarian.  Each of our dogs are fully vetted, including all shots, spayed/neutered, HW tested and/or treated, de-wormed, micro-chipped, groomed, have a dental cleaning, and a panel of blood screenings.  We treat any illness or injury the dog has.   Once the dog is healthy, dogs go into foster homes and live as a member of the family; until the perfect home is found and approved.
