A & S Rescue is a small rescue group
dedicated to finding permanent,
loving homes for American
Staffordshire Terriers and American
Pit Bull Terriers in northern Illinois.
We believe that Am Staffs and Pit
Bulls have gotten a bad reputation by
having careless or cruel owners who
neglect them or use them in illegal
Under no circumstances will we place
our rescue AmStaffs or Pit Bulls into
homes where the dog will be
subjected to dog fighting. We are
strongly opposed to all forms of dog
fighting and similar forms of animal
