Adoptions are held on Saturdays at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart from 11am-3:30pm and on Sundays at both the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart from 11am - 3:30pm and the Edwardsville Crossing Petco from 11:30-3:30pm.  

House of Horrors-5 Dogs Rescued from Extreme Neglect

 Partners for Pets has been contacted by a local area animal control facility regarding 5 dogs that have been victim to extreme neglect, over-breeding, malnourishment, and abuse. A concerned citizen reached out to animal control after noticing a foul smell and constant barking. What investigators found was truly a house of horrors. There were 10 dogs in horrific condition with no food or water available, a home covered in feces and urine, and the homeowner nowhere to be found.
 We immediately accepted 5 of the dogs, that were released due to their extreme medical conditions, to begin the process of healing. Each animal was severely emaciated, covered in fleas, and suffering from a variety of internal parasites. Upon examination Noodle, the worst of the 5 dogs received a body score of 1, the lowest score possible on the 9 point scale. Noodle appears to have mothered puppies very recently, despite her horrific body condition. We do not have information regarding the whereabouts or health status of her young however we do know that her previous owner was breeding and selling puppies publicly up until very recently.
 We are so grateful to say that none of the dogs had injuries or ailments that cannot be treated and we have very high hopes that they will continue to improve and one day have the opportunity to know love in a real home, a home where they can forget the environment they have escaped. These dogs will need extensive care to treat damage the fleas and other parasites have done to their organs and skin.

Today, we are asking our community to please consider donating to help Partners for Pets show Noodle, Ramen, Minestrone, Campbell, and Lentil that their lives matter. Their lives were never supposed to be so full of hardship and from this day forward they will never have to worry when the next meal will be, or if anyone is going to help them. They have us. They have all of you.

*Due to the severity of this case and an open investigation certain details of this story are not included. The 5 remaining dogs reside in animal control until the investigation allows their release at which point they will also go into rescue. Once the investigation is closed and the individuals responsible have been charged we will provide an update. Thank you for your support and understanding. To be continued..

Partners For Pets is a licensed, 501(c)3, no-kill animal rescue located in Troy, IL.  Partners for Pets regularly visits animal control facilities and rescues animals that have used up their time, need medical care, and/or are too fragile for shelter life. Partners for Pets provides care to each animal prior to adoption. This includes, depending on their age: booster shots, deworming, heartworm check & monthly preventative, rabies shot, spay/neuter, grooming, flea/tick prevention, and other necessary care.


Veterinary care is provided at reduced cost through Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital and St. Louis Veterinary Center. A big "Thank You" to Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital and Carol House Quick Fix for all of their excellent work. About 5% of the animals are kept in foster care until adopted while the other 95% are kept in a shelter environment until they are adopted.


For more information about adopting an animal, please click on the "Adoptable Pets" tab.  Adoptions take place every Saturday at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart, every Sunday and the first Saturday of the month at the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart, and every Sunday at the Edwardsville, IL Petco.  (Note:  O'Fallon adoptions are dogs only.)

Sponsor a Shelter Animal
Unfortunately, many of the animals we pull from animal control facilities are either injured or hurt.  You can help by sponsoring a pet today to help get them back on track to being healthy and adoptable.

Donate Your Time
There is a lot of help needed with direct care for the animals. However, there is much more that needs to be done!  Do you have design and/or computer skills?  Are you good with marketing?  There are so many opportunites to help!

Foster a Pet
When you foster, Partners for Pets provides a crate or litter box, food, and all vet care.  We simply ask you to share your love and home with the animal until they are adopted by their forever family.

What They Need
Help the dogs and cats at the shelter by donating some of the supplies needed to provide them with the best care possible. Items needed include things like cleaning supplies, collars/leashes, beds, and toys.
