Chicagoland Dog Rescue Featured Dogs

Any Breed. Any Size. Any Age. Any Reason.


BREED:  Black Lab
AGE:  2 years old
SEX:  Male
BIO: Hi, my name is Duke and I have quite the story to tell.  CDR pulled me from a high kill shelter in Kentucky and just before the transport was leaving to come here, the shelter called CDR to tell them I was heart worm positive. Others might have left me behind and let happen what was going to happen but CDR saved me and found a wonderful foster home where I could recover in peace and quiet.
Now that I am ALL BETTER, it’s time for me to find a new home of MY very own!  I can’t wait for my new furever family to come and get me! I’m a big boy who is sweet as can be but being young, I need to work on some of my manners.  It’s so cool that CDR offers free training to help me be the best possible family member that I can
 Come see me at the adoption events and I think you’ll find a great new friend!
PS-I have been fostered with two cats and think they are my best friends!

Chicagoland Dog Rescue Dogs

Our trained volunteers will determine which home among all applicants is the best fit for the dog, and the dog will be brought back to complete the adoption paperwork.  Our adoption fee is $250 for adult dogs aged 7 months and up and $300 for puppies.  The fee covers the cost of all medical care including all legally required inoculations, a fecal test and deworming (if required), spaying or neutering, and a microchip. Lifetime training is also included.


All our dogs have all legally required preventative inoculations, are microchipped and are spayed or neutered to control the repetitive birth cycle that produces more unwanted dogs. Most have been rescued from kill shelters in the Midwest, so their exact breed and age is often unknown. All dogs have been medically or emotionally rehabilitated as needed and are temperament tested to assess their fit with other dogs, cats and children.

Chicagoland Dog Rescue reserves the right to restrict adoption of a dog to potential adopters who live within a fifty (50) mile radius of Schaumburg, IL

Weekly socialization and basic obedience training is offered to all adopters FREE OF CHARGE for the lifetime of the dog, something no other group offers!  Training is crucial for happy dogs and ensures that our adopted dogs remain in their happy households forever.  A minimum of 4 training sessions is required for all adopted dogs.

Details on our training program can be found here.
