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 dogs.

Look at how gorgeous this boy is! Buster
has been waiting for his forever home for
almost 2 years. He is so much fun and
has a goofy personality! He adores
people but is selective with his dog
friends, some dogs scare him. Buster is
very smart and has gone through
advanced obedience classes.
A & S Rescue, Inc. is a not-for-profit
corporation, which enables us to seek
outside financial assistance. With your
generous support, we are able to save
more AmStaffs and Pit Bulls.
