Sponsor a Cattle Dog

Would you like to help us save cattle dogs but can't adopt or foster? Then consider sponsoring an ACD!

Vetting can be very expensive and most of the time our adoption fee doesn't cover the costs we incur. You can sponsor an individual dog or may donate in memory of a dog you owned.

You may donate by mail or through PayPal. Make checks payable to Australian Cattle Dog Rescue of Illinois.

Your Donation Will Help With:

· Rabies shots
· Heartworm check and/or treatment costs
· Cost of X-Rays
· Spay/Neuter
· Microchips
· Bags of puppy/dog food
· Heartworm preventative (Sentinel or Trifexis)

Or $300.00 will sponsor one cattle dog completely vetted, all shots, spayed or neutered, microchipped, monthly heartworm preventative and dose of Frontline.
