Most of us do what we can throughout the year to help others—humans and canines alike. But during the holidays, when the spirit of giving really takes flight, please remember why your donations are so important. Illinois Shorthair Rescue is volunteer-run, so there are no administrative costs, making it possible for 100% of donations go directly toward helping GSP orphans connect with forever homes. ISR is a 501c3 organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. The majority of our expenses involve vet care, which runs thousands of dollars annually. This year has been especially hard since some orphans have required special care due to injuries, severe illnesses, and heartworm disease. ISR doesn’t turn dogs away just because they have medical conditions that are expensive to treat, but our usual adoption fees don't come close to covering veterinary care. So we rely on the goodness of our donors. To make a donation to ISR, click on the Donate Paw on the left side of any of the web pages. Thank you!
Why do we Rescue? Walker can tell you
ISR rescues around 50 GSPs a year. To help others understand why and what's involved, we thought we'd highlight one of our success stories. Read about Walker and his journey on our News and Events
