Our Pets Are Looking For Someone Like You

Boy Looking to adopt a dog

Because of tough economic times, fewer people can afford to keep their pets. So the number of homeless animals in and around Springfield is increasing dramatically.

Pets to Go is a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter serving the Springfield area. Our mission is to give these homeless animals a second chance through our rescue, shelter, and adoption programs.

Take a look at some of the adorable pets pictured here…and decide if you want to add a new member to the family.

Adopt-A-Rama takes place Saturday, December 4. Click here for details.

A Cat For All Seasons

Astro can thank his lucky stars, because after a car hit him, he made it out of the vet hospital in Springfield and found a temporary home with us. Astro’s a little nervous, but once he settles down, he loves people to pet him. He’s lean and lanky, and even though we think he’s fit to run a kitty marathon, he weighs almost 12 pounds!

Astro is a sweetheart, but he’s very scared right now. Come meet with him and see what a great guy he can be. Maybe you can give him his forever home!

For information about Astro, send us an email.

A High-Energy Bundle of Fun


Wally:  6 years old, spayed male, Shar-Pei, 65 lbs

Wally came to us because he wasn’t a particularly good-looking fellow.  In fact, most people were afraid of him because of his odd looks.  Just goes to show you can’t judge a book by its cover or a dog by his wrinkles.

It turned out that Wally had been a Buddhist monk in a prior incarnation.  Most of the time he sits in the sun meditating, thinking great doggie thoughts but occasionally banging his gong by clanking his dog tag on his metal food bowl.  When he needs to go outside, he stands in front of the door and mumbles loudly until you come to open the door.  You could say that he gets along with cats, other dogs and children, but that would be going too far.  He doesn’t even acknowledge their presence.

Never mind, I think I’ll keep Wally.

Your Kids Will Love This Dog

Rascal is available for adoption at Pets To Go

RASCAL: 7 years old, neutered male, yellow Lab, 75 lbs.

Rascal was “surrendered” to us by his owner, who had lost his home to foreclosure. He’s great with other dogs, and he loves people, going for walks, running, and playing Frisbee. He’s good with children and enjoys riding in the car. He has a cute habit of standing on his haunches and gently giving you his front paws. Rascal shouldn’t go to a home with cats, because he tends to chase them.

Our vet has taken care of all Rascal’s vaccinations, removed his dewclaws, and microchipped him. He’d make a wonderful family dog.

If you’re interested in Rascal, please call Donna at Pets to Go—(555) 555-5555.
