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.
We were founded in 1990 with a few simple objectives: save and place cats and dogs in new homes, and educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets.
We’re now one of the largest no-kill shelters in the state! Each year, Pets to Go helps more than 1,300 cats and dogs find permanent homes.
Pets to Go needs your help in many ways:
ADOPT: Make all the difference in the life or a dog or cat.
VOLUNTEER: Help us save the lives of hundreds of abandoned and unwanted pets each year.
DONATE: Support our life-saving mission.

Snowball and Sally: 6-month-old, spayed female domestic shorthairs, 4 lbs (Snowball) and 5 lbs (Sally)
If you’re looking to bring some love and joy into your home, look no further than these two girls. They’re 6-month-old rescues—amazingly sweet and loving. They’re affectionate (big-time purrers and cuddlers), playful, and endlessly entertaining. They are also healthy, have had their shots, have been spayed, and are litterbox trained. Because they’ve bonded to each other, we’d like to keep them together.
For information about Snowball and Sally, call Jessica at Pets to Go—(555) 555-5555.
Astro: 2-year-old, neutered male, domestic shorthair, 11 lbs
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 is little nervous, but once he settles down, he loves people to pet him. He is lean and lanky, and even though we think he is fit to run a kitty marathon, he weighs almost 12 pounds!
Astro is a sweetheart, but he is 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!

CINDY: 3 years old, spayed female, Shepherd mix, 40 lbs.
Cindy came to us because her family was splitting up. Unhappily, she hasn’t yet gotten the attention a young dog needs.
Cindy is super playful. She loves toys, and her favorite game is fetch. She’s a smart cookie and adapts well and quickly to positive training. She already knows “sit,” “down,” “stay,” “shake,” and “sit pretty,” (you should see that!) and she’s learning more fun tricks like “roll over.” Cindy is house-trained, rides well in the car, and enjoys beauty treatments—being brushed and groomed. She behaves well around the house and respects her boundaries.
However, this special girl needs an adult-only home with people who have experience with large dogs, so she can continue to develop into a well-adjusted dog. Cindy needs someone who’ll give her very clear rules, lots of love, and plenty of exercise. In return, she’ll be your loyal friend for life.
For information about Cindy, call Donna at Pets to Go: (555) 555-5555.
RASCAL: 7 years old, neutered male, yellow Lab, 75 lbs.
Rascal was surrendered to us by his owner who had unfortunately lost his home to foreclosure. Big, happy Rascal is great with other dogs, and he loves people, going for walks, running, and playing Frisbee. He’s good with children too, 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 however go to a home with cats, because he loves every creature on earth, save one. He tends to chase cats. This dog has been well-loved, and it shows in the love he gives back!
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.
