What We Do
We work with a number of no-kill rescue shelters across the State of Illinois. Thanks to the many volunteers who work tirelessly to find placement, many of the animals we help are transported out of at-risk situations to safety! No-kill facilities give the animals the care they need, and the time and resources to find the perfect forever home.
Our volunteers network daily to find an open spot for each animal at a welcoming shelter, and drivers meet weekly or even more often to take them wherever they need to go. Transports are crucial to saving lives, and your donations help make that happen!
Fostering & Networking
We are ALWAYS in need of fosters!! Please contact us if you are able to share just a small portion of your home to an animal in need. Our foster homes provide animals a temporary safe refuge while our volunteers locate either a no-kill rescue shelter to place them, or an adopting family that can provide a forever home.
Food, litter and crates, if needed, are provided while you foster. Fostering is critical to give the animals more time by pulling them from emergency/at-risk situations while longer term help is secured. Fostering helps save lives!!
Although resources are often stretched, we may be able to offer emergency assistance when the need arises. In the event of a traumatically injured or ill animal, emergency vet assistance may be available.
In the past, we have been able to use networking and resources to provide emergency pet food assistance, as well as parvo test-kits, heartworm test-kits, low-cost vaccinations and flea medications.
When possible, animals that may be residing in one of our foster homes may be eligible for adoption into a forever home. Animals we foster are typically awaiting placement in a no-kill shelter where they can receive care and assistance with finding a new home.
However, if you are interested in adopting, please reach out to us to see if we may have any eligible animals to recommend. We require the completion of an adoption application and possibly a home-visit for the animal. This is to confirm they are a good fit with your family and any other pets you may already have.
