Pal's Place

Hello Pal's Place friends and supporters,

Many of you have seen eastern Kentucky's horrible devastation from flooding. Many of you might not know that 95% of the dogs' Pal's Place rescues come from the counties most affected by the floods. If you adopted a dog through Pal's Place over the past several years, your beloved dogs likely originated from these towns. Many shelter volunteers who helped bring your dogs to the north have lost their homes and pets to flooding. Yet they are still working to rescue surviving dogs, who will be sent north if foster homes await.

Pal's Place is sending out an S.O.S for new fosters! If you have ever considered fostering a dog, the time is now! The need is immediate and will continue for the next several weeks to months as the people of Kentucky do their best to recover. Fostering for Pal's Place is free. We provide a crate, leash, collar, bowls, food, and any other necessary supplies. We also provide all necessary vet care at one of our partner clinics. Foster homes must be in Chicago or a neighboring suburb so vet care can be provided with one of our clinics. If interested in fostering, please email us at Palsplace1@hotmail.com. We are including some photos of the devastation and some pictures of just a few of the many dogs that need rescue.

I adopted Ellie from you years ago. I wish I were still local to be able to help.

Pal's Place has two very exciting happy tails to share! After being in the care of the rescue for over 8 months, Tilly and Bandit have found their forever homes! They were rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky October 2021. We are still stumped as to why it took so long for such lovely dogs to find their forever families, but we are beyond thrilled that both have finally landed in the homes of their dreams! Bandit, now Cooper, is living large in Indiana. He's got a huge fenced yard to frolic in and the company of several family dogs he visits every couple of days. Tilly, now Sally, stayed local. She also has a large fenced yard and a dad who works from home, so constant company for our sweet girl! ... See MoreSee Less

Please share! Bandit is another long-term resident of Pal's Place looking for a family. Bandit came to us in October along with Tilly from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky. He's a super sweet, friendly, boy but he is an energetic 90-pound pooch who does not always know his size or strength. His ideal guardians would be an active household experienced with large, powerful dogs.Please Share …

Chicago, IL – Adopt Bandit the Lab/Boxer/Husky-Mix

Bandit is a goofy, funny, happy, playful, and sweet, lug of a two-year-old, 90-pound, tri-color, male, Lab/Boxer/Husky-mix looking for a loving guardian.

This fellow was rescued from an animal control facility in rural Kentucky. He was so unrecognizable as a breed, his rescuer did a DNA analysis to find out that he was 17 breeds that make Bandit so unique! The largest portion of his DNA, 21% comes from the Labrador Retriever, followed by equal proportions (16%) of two other breeds, Boxer and Husky, 12% Chow, and smaller percentages (less than 10%) of Rottweiler, Pit Bull, Collie, Shetland Sheepdog, Aussie, Cattledog, and a few other breeds.

He’s a sweetheart but best with teens and adults because he doesn’t know his own size and still jumps up. He’s a bit of a bull in a china shop. Not aggressive, just β€œderpy” as his foster mom calls him. He is crate-trained and housebroken when kept on schedule. He is puppyish and can benefit from training. He’s great with other larger dogs, but no cats. Bandit loves to play fetch, adores his toys, long walks, and snuggles.

Bandit is extremely healthy, neutered microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. He is also taking monthly flea and heartworm prevention. His adoption fee of $375 benefits the Pals Place Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Bandit, please e-mail Palsplace1@hotmail.com for an application. He is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment after filling out an application.

Please share sweet Tilly's photos and bio far and wide. This wonderful girl has been with Pal's Place since October with virtually no interest or applications and we cannot understand why!! She is a lovely, affectionate, well-behaved girl who deserves a forever family soon.Please Share …

Chicago, IL – Adopt Tilly the Gentle Yet Energetic Boxer/Coonhound-Mix

Tilly is a gorgeous, energetic, gentle, and affectionate, five-year-old, 65-pound, black and tan female Boxer/Coonhound-mix looking for a loving guardian.

This girl actually give hugs and is quite cuddly!

Rescued from an animal control facility in rural Kentucky, she didn’t have the best start in life. But that luck changed when she came to Chicago.

She’s not an appropriate dog for an apartment. She’s not destructive but she can be vocal while adjusting to a new home. She is housebroken and likes other dogs. She is an alpha female who is great with submissive male dogs, but doesn’t do well with cats.

She would love a home with a fenced in yard, and maybe even some children who can toss a ball for her!

A DNA test revealed that seven different Hound breeds make up 44% of her makeup while the remaining percentage is split equally between Husky and Boxer with a dash (2%) of Tibetan Mastiff to combine for a perfect pooch.

Tilly is extremely healthy, spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. He is also taking monthly flea and heartworm prevention. Her adoption fee of $375 benefits the Pals Place Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Tilly, please e-mail Palsplace1@hotmail.com for an application. She is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment only after applying.

i’ve met her she is a love. Also she hugged me.

Awe I wish we were ready to add another, but our most recent rescue is still adjusting. She looks precious! πŸ’œπŸ’œ

She has the body of Felix with a slightly different face. What a sweet dog.

She’s adorable!

Pal's Place would love to introduce you to Keanne, an absolutely gorgeous female sable German Shepherd. This stunning girl was rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in Kentucky. She is now in a loving foster home in Chicago while she waits to meet her forever family. Keanne is estimated to be 2 to 2.5 years old and weighs 80 pounds. KikI is a typical young German Shepherd. She is extremely energetic, intelligent, and busy! She is profoundly sweet and eager to please and already knows her basic commands. She has more energy and more drive than the average German Shepherd. Because of this, we feel she is going to do best in an experienced German Shepherd home. She is no couch potato and will not be happy with a few long walks around the neighborhood every day or playing ball a few times a week. She will need a job to do and at least an hour of vigorous exercise a day, along with plenty of mental stimulation to channel her energy into something productive. She loves to play fetch and she loves to play in the water.
Kiki will be a fantastic companion for guardians looking to participate in a dog sport like agility, tracking, flyball, etc. Keanne is being fostered with several other dogs and gets along well with all of her foster housemates. She is housebroken and crate trained as well! She is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Unfortunately, she did test positive for heartworm and is in the process of being treated. Treatment for heartworm is usually spread over a couple of months, so we are allowing Keanne to go to her forever home provided her adopters can return Keanne to Pal's Place for her remaining two treatments that are scheduled for the end of June. The cost of the treatment is covered 100% by Pal's Place at our partner veterinary clinic.

If you think you can provide Keanne with all she needs to thrive, please reach out to us today! With the right guardians and the right environment, she will be a once-in-lifetime dog!

Keanne is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date with vaccines. She is taking monthly flea prevention. Her adoption fee to the rescue is $375. She is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment only after submitting an application. For more information or an application, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com or visit palsplacerescue.org. Unfortunately, we cannot place holds on our dogs for any reason. Please do not apply unless you are willing and prepared to welcome a dog into your home within three days of applying.

Chicago, IL – Adopt Greyson the Dog-Friendly Shy Shepherd/Chow/Retriever-Mix

Greyson is a gorgeous, gentle, dog-friendly, shy, male, 18-month-old, 60-pound, red and white Shepherd/Chow/Retriever-mix looking for a loving guardian.

This guy would be so happiest in a family with another dog, and a yard to play in. He really needs another dog to bring out his happy self and help him boost his confidence. He is doing great with housebreaking when taken out on a regular schedule. He is also crate-trained.

Greyson is looking for a patient person with experience with shy nervous dogs. He may take months to come around. He is food-motivated which will help with his training. He’s already picked up on the command sit!

Rescued from an overburdened animal control facility in rural Kentucky, he didn’t have the best start in life. But that luck changed when he came to Chicago.

Greyson is extremely healthy, neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. He is also taking monthly flea and heartworm prevention. His adoption fee of $375 benefits the Pals Place Rescue. To meet and possibly adopt Greyson, please e-mail Palsplace1@hotmail.com for an application. He is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment only after applying.

We adopted Greysons sister, Riley (now Indy!). She is the most loving, loyal and fun loving dog. She looks to us for guidance instead of running away and quickly became my 4 year old daughters best friend. Thank you to Pal’s Place for trusting us to love this girl πŸ’• She gets ang perfectly with our other dogs, respects their boundaries, always up for snuggles and play. We cannot express how much we love her! I know her brother will be just as amazing with a family to love him, he just need a a chance!!

You continue to do a great job! So glad you are here to help these sweet dogos.. here is Sinatra; almost two years with us now..

Almost as many animals as people in your house now

So handsome!

***Please share adorable Hammy's bio and photos! He needs a foster or forever home! This sweet fellow loves people but would do best in a home without any other dogs. Hammy is not particularly interested in dogs outside of the house but does not like to share his attention with others in the home. His current foster is having to keep Hammy separate from their dogs, so he spends most of his day alone πŸ™ We'd love to get him into a foster home that is a better match for him, or better yet, a forever home!
Fostering for Pal's Place is free! We provide all necessary supplies and veterinary care until the dog is adopted. Fosters must be in Chicago or a neighboring suburb. If interested, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com***

Hammy is an amiable, charismatic, happy-go-lucky fellow in need of a forever home. This sweet little man was rescued from an animal control facility in Kentucky and has found his way to a loving foster home in Chicago while he waits to meet his forever family. Hammy was found as a stray, so not much is known about his background. He appears to be a mix of several breeds, possibly including Mountain Cur, Beagle, Terrier, and Collie. A truly mixed-up mixed breed! He weighs in at 38 pounds, so a great medium size. He is estimated to be 7-9 years old. Despite being a bit older, he is still quite spry, loves to play, and has a lot of pep in his step. Hammy greets every person he meets with a smile on his face and a wiggle in his butt. This guy loves, loves, loves people, and enjoys being as close to the people as loves as possible. He is a major cuddler, and couch snuggles are the highlight of his day. Hammy has done well with some dogs (primarily females and dogs smaller than him) in the past, but the longer he has been in our care, the clearer it's become that he would prefer not to share his home with other canines. Hammy is well-behaved, housebroken, crate trained, and trustworthy with free run of the house when alone. If interested in adopting this charming pup, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com for more information or an application. Hammy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and taking monthly flea and heartworm prevention. He is ready to go home today!
β€’ Hammy's adoption fee is $275. This fee covers the cost of his neuter, vaccines, microchip, and initial de-worming. Hammy is currently in a foster home in Chicago and can be seen by appointment once an application has been received and approved. For more information or an application, please email palsplace1@hotmail.com or visit our website at www.palsplacerescue.org
β€’ Hammy's adoption donation helps cover any necessary medical care to prepare him for adoption. Pal's Place relies solely on donations to care for the pets in our care. Your donation also helps save other animals like Odin from euthanasia.
β€’ We are an all-volunteer organization. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. If you do not receive a response within 48 hours, please check your spam folder; applications often end up in there.
