    Han Solo has been here the longest of all the dogs since December. He is about 2 year old and just an adult puppy! We are not sure of the breed mix. He loves to play with toys and tennis balls.

He is very treat motivated which is great for consistent training. The volunteers are still working with him on his manners and commands. A family that is willing to give him the time, attention, and training he needs, we believe he would do really well. He is ...

He is a Lonely Hearts Club Member so his adoption fee is half-price at $55, sponsored by the Winnebago County Animal Services Auxiliary. The best way to get to know him is to come visit with him!!!

Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* How you doin'? I'm Rusty, but my friends call me Love Muffin, and if you're looking for a handsome stud who will provide you with endless affection, I'm the dog for you! I am a 6-year-old, 85-pound reddish/gold colored Lab mix and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. Not to sound vain, but I'm a pretty awesome guy. I don't know how I ended up all alone at a local animal shelter, but I was so happy when my new human friends at Fetching Tails came to save me. I have been loving life at my foster home. I am my foster ... (Read More)dad's shadow and love to follow him around, and I also really like my doggie foster sister. We have so much fun playing in the big back yard together. I even get along with the resident cat! He is usually shy around dogs, but my happy demeanor lets him know I'm a good friend. And boy do I have a happy-go-lucky personality! Since I am middle aged, though I have lively energetic bursts (especially when playing with my foster sister!) I also like to chill out and relax a LOT too! It's a nice balanced energy level, I think. I'm always happy to meet new people, and I like to bark and let other dogs know I'm here when I see them walking by the house. I'm just so friendly and want to make new pals! I am also potty trained and listen well to commands, including sit, down, paw, and 'come on' when foster dad wants me to follow him. Foster dad says I'm very well behaved in the house. I don't need to be crated when he is at work; I whine like a puppy a little when he leaves, but then I just lay around and wait for him to come home. I don't even jump on the furniture! My foster sister is always climbing on the couch, but I am happy laying on the floor near my person. When I think of my forever home, I'm not too picky. I just want a home with people who love me as much as I love them (so love me A LOT!) I would have fun with a doggie playmate, but would also be content as your one and only love muffin. I like to play in my foster dad's fenced yard, but I would do fine in a home without one as long as we could enjoy walks together. I do love food and especially treats, though, so hopefully my forever family will keep a hearty stock of cookies for me to snack on. I'll even work for my treats; my favorite 'trick' is taking selfies! I love when my foster dad's adult daughter visits and pulls out her camera phone. Hey, I know I'm handsome and if you want to take a picture to show your friends what a good looking fella I am, I am happy to make a goofy smile! So what are you waiting for? I sound like Mr. Wonderful, right? Right! Please hurry up and get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation today; tell them the love muffin Rusty sent you! I can't wait to start our life together! Love, Rusty If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org if you have any questions please email us. Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment Adoption Fees: Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 (Less)

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] This is very hard for me...Bear, we think he is a Lab/Corgi mix (he is short) is needing a FUREVER HOME..., Bear is a really cool dog. Everyone that meets him, just loves him, he would love to be a lap dog....although he forgets he is over 45 lbs. I have been trying to find him a home for quite a long time, as he was dumped in my lap by a guy who was getting divorced and had to move...then when he did it was convenient that he could not have a dog any longer. Bear is a good dog, but really needs to have a different home he should be an only dog, he loves adults, older adults and teenagers, needs more personal ... (Read More)attention and freedom then I can give, he spend 23+ hours a day in his cage at my home. He is neutered, up on all of his shots, house broken, when he is the only dog....but will mark if others are in the house. He listens to most commands, and all things considered I love him, and this is breaking my heart. I have had many rescues in my home over the past few years, several papillons, a jack russell mix, 2 cocker mixes, and boston mix, and a 14+ lab that we took in almost 2 years ago, to spend the end of her life in my home. This breaks my heart, but he deserves love, he adores teenagers especially girls. Due to several reasons including personal health issues, I can't give him that. Bear should not be left free when know one is home as he will mark furniture( I believe he thinks he has been abandoned, when home alone not in the crate) , he loves his crate, has his meals in there and does not have accidents. I am gone 10 plus hours a day. He had seizures when we first got him (another thing he original owner 'forgot' to tell us) but we found he has a grain allergy, and since going grain free the seizures are no more. Being in my home, in a crate for so many hours a day, with zero exposure to possible furever homes is not fair to Bear, he deserves better...much better.... He does not show well in a group environment, we have tried to bring him to several adoption events, he barks and lunges at the other dogs, but once he is given a chance to meet the other dogs, all he wants to do his play, so one on one meets with people is important for someone to get to see who he really is. So by this weekend I am going to relinquish him to a local no-kill shelter, hoping he gets more exposure to find the right furever home, unless someone here can help him and consider adopting him.

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Looking for a fun-loving buddy to share good times and a few laughs? Well, hello! Schmidt here. My friends call me Schmitty. My pals at Fetching Tails Foundation brought me up from Southern Illinois to help me on my quest to find my forever home. Like many Southern gents, I make friends very easily, and so far I love all the people and dogs I've met since I came up north. Let's get the vital statistics out of the way: I'm 30 pounds of sweetness, with inquisitive brown eyes, white fur with tan spots on my ears. Not to brag (that wouldn't be ... (Read More)very gentlemanly), but I think my picture is pretty darn irresistible, don't you? I'm a retriever mix, about 6 months old, so I'll probably be 'just right sized' - large enough to be your accomplice for any adventure, but not too large to curl up next to you on the couch at the end of the day. I currently live in a foster home with two adults, a 13 year old human foster sibling whom I adore, and two dog siblings (a lab and a pit mix). The dogs and I get along wonderfully! I take great delight in hiding in the bushes, then jumping out to run after my four-legged siblings. I think I'd like my forever home to have another dog so that we can play, and you can join in, too! I wouldn't mind having some human siblings in my forever home, but older is better. I wouldn't want to accidentally knock down a younger child. I have a lot of love to give, so the more the merrier! I'm house trained and crate trained, although I'm not really happy about being in a crate. Right now I'm only left alone for about 6 hours at a time. My favorite chew toys are marrow bones and any kind of hard bones. You don't have to worry about me chewing on 'unapproved' objects as long as I have plenty of bones handy. Let's talk about how much fun we're going to have together! My foster mom says you'll have a laugh every day. I love to be outdoors, don't you? I have a fenced yard at my foster home, and I'd like one at my forever home so I can run around. Foster mom loves to watch me in the yard because I'm so entertaining when I roll and flip in the grass! Running is my favorite thing to do, so if you need a running buddy, I'm here for you. Not a runner? No problem! Take me on daily walks, and I'd be content as long as you have a fenced yard so I can run on my own and play with you. What's your favorite game? I'm very smart and I love to learn knew things, so I'll learn to play it anything you like. Or we can just perfect our game of fetch together. I'm a pretty entertaining guy; you'll never be bored! My foster family is helping me fine-tune my skills. I already know 'sit,' and I'm working hard to remember that humans don't like dogs to jump up or nip. Hey, I'm still a pup, and I sometimes get a little over exuberant. Don't you think it would be cool to take some training classes together? I hear it's a great way for us to bond, and I'm sure you're going to want your sidekick to be well-mannered, right? So are you ready to meet me already? I can't wait to meet you so we can get started on this journey called life together! Just contact my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation, OK? I'm waiting for you. X0X0 from Schmidt Please read all adoption requirements and adoption fee's below! *TRAINING IS REQUIRED! THE PUPPY MUST BE SIGNED UP FOR TRAINING AFTER 14 DAYS OF THE ADOPTION!

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Are you looking for a wise, mature gentleman to spend your life with? Here I am! My name is Wilson, and I am an 8-year-old lab mix looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. Not only am I am I a healthy 65 pounds and have stunning black fur with highlights that look golden brown in the sun, I also have a gentle, loving personality that makes me quite the catch, if I could so humbly report! My Fetching Tails friends rescued me from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where my previous owners left me when they didn't want me ... (Read More)anymore. I'm practically perfect in every way, so my new humans tell me they can't understand how anyone could ever just drop me off at a loud, busy shelter like that. It's ok, though, because I'm loving life in my foster home, and my foster mom tells me my future is going to be even better with a loving, permanent family! I can't wait! When I say 'practically perfect,' I'm not just being cutesy to try and convince you to give me a chance...my foster parents can back me up when I tell you that I have great house manners. I don't have potty accidents, I do fine when mom and dad are at this place called 'work' during the day, and I know basic commands including 'sit,' 'stay,' 'come,' and the all important 'no.' I don't like being confined in a crate, but that doesn't bother my foster parents because I just like to curl up on the carpet or dog bed while they are gone and don't mess with anything I'm not supposed to. And please don't let my age detract you. Yes, I am eight years old, but that's just a number; I still have a life of love and devotion to give you! I'm not hyper with endless energy like many young labs, which could be a good thing, right? Right! I do take some joint supplements that my foster mom can tell you about; they are like the vitamins you humans take for yourselves and they help keep my legs feeling good, which is important because I still really like my long walks with my foster parents. I'm not going to be running any marathons anymore, but who doesn't love a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood to sniff the flowers and say hi to friends? I'm a friendly guy, so let's get out there and give your neighbors a chance to tell you what a good, distinguished doggie you have! And I can't forget to tell you my absolute favorite activity: rolling over on my back so you can give me lots of belly rubs! Nothing feels better than stretching out next to my person while getting my tummy scratched. Doesn't that just sound perfect? So if a cuddly, mellow, loving companion like me sounds like a match made in heaven, please get in touch with my human friends at Fetching Tails Foundation today and tell them Wilson is the guy for you! I can't wait to start our 'happy tail' together! Heart, Wilson If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us at Info@fetchingtailsfoundation.org Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 (Less)

Cash needs a companion that will be home all day. He can get very anxious if there is a lot of commotion around the house, so he would do better with older children, and a quiet atmosphere. Cash would prefer to be an only furbaby. He loves getting all the attention! Not sure how he is with cats. Our wish for Cash is that he can ...

He is very smart and knows right from wrong, but unfortunately, he has not had an owner who has been able to give him the time and love he so deserves and desires. Cash is 7 years old. (Less)

    DOB 3/1/15 After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be lab/pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great without one. ... (Read More) Cuddling up with her foster family at bed time, is one of her favorite things. Since she was an outside dog, she had to learn about housebreaking. Rarely having any accidents, she is almost there. She enjoys, is playful with and friendly with other dogs, but prefers dogs that aren't dominant. Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for someone who is home most of the day and can get out and get her exercised. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Meet Tess!! Lab/Hound Mix 7+ years old Hello there, my name is Tess. I'm about a 50 pound hound dog and I'm at least 7 years old, but I may be a little older. Life has been rough up until now, but the great people at Safe Haven want to make sure that I have the best life possible from now on! It took a lot of work for them to get me ready to meet my new people. I had my teeth cleaned, I was spayed and treated for heartworm AND lymes disease! Then we found out that I had to have part of my jaw and a tooth removed! Now that I'm all better I can't wait to be whole again with a new family! I was real scared when I got here. My foster ... (Read More)mom helped me get through some of the things I was afraid to do, and I can do them all by myself now. If I come across something that isn't in my comfort zone I need to be praised and told I'm okay. Since life before Safe Haven was so rough, I've developed arthritis and I have a very low energy level. I think that my new home would be a place that doesn't have any small children and that is very low energy, just like me! I enjoy the occasional car ride, love short walks, laying in the sun, lots of petting and belly rubs, and food is a big thing to me. My arthritis is very common among dogs my age and my foster mom helps me to manage it with daily medication to make me feel better. Overall, I'd really enjoy finding a family who is quiet and calm, who wants a companion dog (that's ME!) and maybe someone who even has another calm senior dog for me to lay around with! Please don't let my arthritis stop you from meeting me, I've been told I'm one awesome girl! Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee).

    Tiffany is the sweetest baby! The person who transported her to us from GA fell in love with her and, if he didn't have so many dogs of his own, would probably have kept her. That is how great this girl is. Tiffany is spayed, up-to-date on her shots, and microchipped. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and loves people. She is a curious girl who likes to explore and lets her nose lead her. She is quiet - I did not hear her bark, whimper, or whine the whole half hour it took me to get her to her foster home. Tiffany is crate and potty trained. We are looking for an adopter that has another dog in the home - Tiffany needs the ... (Read More)companionship - and who enjoys an active lifestyle. When last weighed, she came in at 52 lbs. We believe she is between 1 and 2 years old, so she is fully grown. She'll make a lucky family a wonderful dog. (Less)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult


    **URGENT!! SARGIE HAS BEEN STUCK IN BOARDING FOR 9 MONTHS AND RESCUE CAN NO LONGER PAY BILL TO KEEP HIM THERE.** Please read entire post if you might be able to help! Sargie was born into our rescue. At the age of 8 weeks Sargie ended up with Parvo due to cross contamination by his foster mom going to a shelter. Sargie made a full recovery and adopted out when he was 4 months old. Sadly, three years later his owners divorced and neither one of them wanted Sargie any longer. We did not have any open fosters so Sargie ended up in boarding. However he did find a wonderful foster. She fostered Sargie for just over six months. We knew she ... (Read More)was a short term foster, as she was moving out of state. She could not take Sargie and now he is back in boarding. Sargie is a lover and cuddler. He is VERY food motivated and loves to please his handler. Sargie loves to go on long walks, runs, or hikes. He loves the water and the car. Sargie has amazing leash manners but is a bit hyper at first due to being in a kennel for several months. Sadly, Sargie received very little socialization and training in the 3 years he was living with his adoptive family. Sargie has a lot of fear issues that we are working on. He needs a foster family that will work with us and our trainer to help him overcome his fear of new people. He needs a foster that has no other pets and no children under...he needs an ADULT ONLY foster. Sargie has begn training in our facility with their personal trainer and he is also on medication to help him get through this. This will continue in his foster home as well. Sargie is such a good boy and does not deserve to be in boarding...but until we find proper foster placement, this is our only way to keep him safe. Without us, he would have been taken to and have already been put down. It is the sad reality of today's world. We are praying we can find a foster for him quickly...to bring the joy back in to his heart. ROR, KC (Less)

He is crate trained, never potties in the crate or kennel. He was rescued from a very high kill shelter in AL, where many dogs never make it out. I seen his face and just didnt want him cut short when hes still a pup with SO much potential! He will need exercise to be a good dog, either playing with another dog (med or large he loves to rough house with them!) or jogging, agility, tagging along a bike. This dog is athletic and needs an active family, no couch potatoe here (although after play time I am sure he would love couch time!!) He knows sit and he loves attention. His favorite thing other then playing is to flop over on his back so you can rub his belly! He wants to meet anyone who has visited and so many people have been very impressed with how handsome he is, but they were wanting a small dog. I havent worked with him much at all but he does learn fast! Please email for more photos he is solid built and acts very much like a lab! Contract and vet reference required to adopt. A friend has sponsored half of his adoption fee of $200. to help him find a great forever home! (Less)

    Lab Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Labrador Retrievers are friendly dogs that are popular in multiple countries as family pets.

lnteresting Lab Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Labs have very gentle mouths and can even carry an egg without it breaking. One rescue lab named Jake helped dig through burning debris at Ground Zero to find people trapped after 9/11, and later helped with rescue efforts after Hurricane Katrina. Labs are descended from St. John's Water Dogs. Labs became popular in nineteenth century England.
