Looking for Fosters

Foster brothers Tater and Scotch would like to remind you all that some of their friends are waiting on foster (or better yet, forever) homes.

Nova, in the upper right hand corner, is a wonderfully sweet girl who loves people and even other animals. Nova has a dominant personality (not to be confused with aggressive, as people sometimes do). This means that after a few weeks in a foster home, she can get bossy if allowed to. She is a very smart girl and if you give her an inch, she’ll take a mile. She needs someone who will be a leader, set her ground rules and guidelines and be consistent with her on a daily basis. She has met a lot of our volunteers and even gone to meet Curtis Scott Dog Trainer. All agree she’s a great dog, extremely friendly, loves to cuddle, not at all fearful.
When we say a dog needs a strong leader, that does not mean that she needs someone who is going to be a harda**, or mean, or put her in a pinch collar and walk around popping it – not even close. It means a person who is simply committed to working with her everyday. Exercises and training activities to keep her mind engaged, keep her focused on her person, and let her know she doesn’t have to lead because her home already has a leader. Nova truly is a sweetheart and anyone interested in her should know that we will provide training support.

Lower right hand is Nico, still waiting on a home. Nico is very sweet, affectionate, takes treats gently, good on a leash and likes to go for walks. No really little kids and a calmer (I’m not talking a monastery, just not overly active) environment, since being blind in one eye can make him a little bit skittish.

And Rufus, poor guy in the lower left hand corner. We are still trying to find a foster home to get him pulled from the shelter. He is visually impaired after suffering some abuse and is absolutely petrified. We need to get him in a loving home ASAP to help him begin to heal.

Fostering costs you nothing but time and patience and love. For more information, please contact us at ABRAangels@gmail.com.

Thank You!

A huge thank you to our awesome volunteers who made the Pawsta Dinner a success. Thank you to everyone who came to donate to such a wonderful cause. Because of the support we receive from the community, we are able to rescue so many incredible animals who otherwise wouldn’t make it out of the shelter.

On that note, we would like to introduce our next big event! This will be our final event of the season. We will be at  Stampede Saloon in Manteno, IL on November 20 (see the calendar for more details). Maggi Aubert Mayfield one of your favorite X-Country on-air personalities has been so wonderful as to volunteer to guest bartend from 8pm-12midnight and donate all of her tips to ABRA, Inc. (All Breed Rescue Angels)! Please help us save as many puppies as we can! The funds will go towards food, medicine, vet bills, and general care of dogs who are in desperate need.

We will also have Justin Strawson here to teach you some line dances, a DJ playing your favorite country hits, and so much more fun stuff going on! This is going to be such a fun filled night, and we will be helping get these dogs the care they deserve!

We hope you can join us!!

Pawsta Party!

Join us for a PAWSTA party! Tickets to the event are $10 for adults; $5 for children. All proceeds will benefit ABRA, Inc. to care for the animals we pull from local shelters. We will also be accepting donations of supplies for Hammond Animal Control.

Even if you are unable to adopt, you can continue to support our cause and help these animals find health and happiness. We have taken in a total of 18 new animals in just the past week. Every animal immediately goes to our vet for a check up and receives any medical care that is needed. With so many dogs and cats, we are always seeking ways to pay down our vet bill. If you are able to donate, please visit the link below or feel free to call our vet (219-627-3264 Animal Care Center of St. John, located inside Alsip) to make a medical donation directly to the ABRA, Inc. account. Every little bit helps and no amount is too small.
