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 ways.

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 abuse.

A & S Rescue was founded in 2001 by Alise
Carrico and Silvia Simmons and is both a  
registered  Illinois not-for-profit organization
(501c3) and registered as a rescue agency
with the Department of Agriculture.  Since its
founding A & S Rescue has placed over 500
New Sponsors!
