Coco has a big heart and a big energy level to match! She tries very hard to be the best girl that she can, but she will need someone dedicated to help her along the path of being a good girl. She is a high energy girl who would not do well as a couch potato. She would love an owner who is looking for an active companion that they can hike, run, and continue to train.
Coco has been spending time with the staff and trainers at Benny’s Bed and Biscuits to help refine her skills and set her up for success in her new home. She is given daily outlets to stimulate her both physically and mentally, including puzzle toys for her meals, leash walking, basic obedience, and supervised play with other dogs. Coco would do best where she could continue to have this sort of daily enrichment. She has been shown to get along with most male dogs of all energy levels, she plays appropriately, if a bit rough, but is not pushy with dogs who are on the mellower side. She has been a bit selective of other female dogs. Some of the basic obedience and manners behaviors that Coco has been working on are:
• Sitting and staying
• Sitting politely for petting
• Sitting and waiting for her food dish to be set down
• Coming when called
• Not pulling on the leash while walking
• No jumping up when excited
• Stayin on a matt or dog bed
• Sleeping in a crate
• Lying down (although she does still need a bit of help with a good lure for this one)
The trainers at Benny’s are happy to go over all of this with her new owners, as well as offer a free follow up private lesson once she has settled into her new home so that she is set up for long term success with all that she has learned.
Our Adoption Process:
*You must complete an adoption application before meeting an animal.
*We do all checks on references and vet checks.
*Please let your references know we will be calling.
*Once approved, you can set up an appointment to meet any of the animals at the Granite City Animal Control, or the ones in foster homes.
*There will be a meet and greet and then a home visit.
*After that you will sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.
$85 for Rabbits / $80 for Cats / $100 Kittens / $150 for Dogs / $200 for Puppies Six Months & Under
The dog adoption application is located here:
All our animals are completely vetted with the required vaccinations, microchipped and spayed/neutered before leaving the rescue.
Cats will have FIV/FeLV testing
Dogs will have Heartworm testing
Rabbits will have a wellness check
Many times we also get feral cats or semi-friendly cats (can be petted but doesn't like to be held) needing barn homes. You will need to provide shelter and food. There are not any adoption fees for barn cats (donations are accepted) but you will still need to fill out the cat adoption form. Just list the number of barn cats you are wanting.
We are a small foster based rescue but some of our animals are residing at the Granite City Animal Control in Madison County, Illinois until they can be adopted, fostered or pulled by another rescue.
Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more fosters.
If you are interested in fostering, the foster application is located here:
Pound Pets volunteers cleans the animal control building, we are the caregivers for the animals brought in. Once they come through the door, they become our responsibility. We photograph all animals and post to the Pound Pets Facebook page. We provide them clean kennels, beds, blankets, toys, treats, outside play time, walks and human interaction. We try to comfort the scared, keep the high-energy ones exercised and provide plenty of love and affection to make their time at animal control as less stressful as possible.
Sometimes they get reclaimed by their families and sometimes they don't. If they don't it is our responsibility to find the adopters, fosters or rescues to save them from euthanasia.
We get in sick and injured animals as well. They do not sit in their kennels or cages needing veterinary care. Once we see the need for care they are taken to the vet. Sometimes the illness or injury is minor and the city will cover the bill, Other times when it's not, we do. We do all of this on our own dime. We buy the food, the beds, the blankets, the toys, and all the other things that go into care for the animals. Sometimes things are donated and that is wonderful!! We pay the medical bills that the city doesn't. As with most animal controls, there is a limit on what they will do or cover. At Pound Pets, there is no limit. Broken Bones, Surgery, Parvo, Heartworm, etc., if the animal has a chance the animal is given that chance. This is not a shelter but an animal control.
Pound Pets Inc Rescue can always use more volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering, the volunteer application is located here:
We are always looking for licensed rescues to pull cats (including FIV+ cats) and dogs from the Granite City Animal Control in Madison County, Illinois. It's a very small animal control and strays keep coming in. There are no fees for a rescue to pull. If you can help us, please email the volunteers at firstname.lastname@example.org
