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 an Illinois
not-profit organization and registered as a rescue agency with the Department of
Agriculture. Since its founding A & S Rescue has placed over 500 dogs.
Pet Guardian Angels of America,
a national pet rescue and
adoption assistance service also
offering general and health
related articles and resources for
all types of pets.

Hi, My name is Monroe......I'm a
little over a year old!! I'm a big
clumsy goofy girl and I'm looking
for my forever home!
I get along great with my 5 foster
sister and brother pit bulls...I'm
not so sure about the cat that
lives here, so maybe I better go to
a place that doesn't have one!
I love long walks and do AMAZING
on a leash and I know my basic
commands!! Do you know anyone
looking for a snuggle bug in bed??
If so...I'm your girl!
