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.  Since its founding A & S Rescue has
placed over 500 dogs.
