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!!
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.

Otto, our 8-9 week old chi/terrier mix wants to wish you all a wonderful day! Otto is simply precious and a total loverboy. He, along with his sisters (Molly and Maggie), are available for adoption. Adoption fee is $350 and covers: de-worming, 3 booster vaccines, rabies, spay/neuter, microchipping, etc. If you are interested in adding this adorable face to your family, please fill out an application!
Just a few of our many incredible adoptables. All ages, all sizes, all incredibly loveable, and all looking for the perfect forever home. 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.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who came out and made our “Kegger for Argus” event on Sunday such a huge success. We had a blast and raised enough money to send Argus to a professional where he will get the time and attention he needs to overcome his fears. Words can not express how grateful we are to: The 5th Amendment in Hammond,Three Floyds Brewpub, Dark Matter Coffee, Chicago Pita Kitchen, Marco’s Pizza, NWI Cavalier Distributing, Argus Brewery, and our champion Darlene for organizing the event. We are also full of love and gratitude for everyone single one of you that came out to help. Without the support of the community, we could not continue to rescue area dogs and cats.
We will be out at the Merrillville Petsmart this Sunday, August 10th, from 12-3 with some of our adoptable furbabies! Come out to see us!
Argus is one of our dogs who needs some extra special help. He is an absolute sweetheart with people, but really reactive around other animals, afraid of anything new, and needs more help than we are able to provide him with. We are raising funds to send Argus to a professional for a few weeks who can help us to undo the damage done by his previous owners, to build his confidence and help him with his manners. It isn’t cheap, but he’s worth it. If you spent 10 minutes with him, you’d agree!
Hopefully you will join us next Sunday, August 3rd, for a great time and an adorable cause at Fifth Amendment Bar in Hammond! We’re going to have lots of fun and some great stuff going on. Many thanks to Three Floyds Brewpub, Chicago Pita Kitchen, Dark Matter Coffee, and Marco’s Pizza for their awesome donations! Buy a bracelet for all you can drink soda or juice for $6, Lite draft for $12, all you can craft (kind will be determined at a later date) for $25! This includes food DJ Nick Ruich raffles and games. Starts at 2pm goes until 2am! All proceeds will be used solely for Argus’s training.
We could use some help with our medical bills. We could use some funds to work with a professional behaviorist on some of our dogs whose spirits have been broken or scarred. We could use some help with our boarding bills. We could use some help with buying supplies such as heartworm prevention/flea/tick, etc. As the song goes, “I ain’t too proud to beg!” Anything for these beautiful souls.
