Adopt a dog.

Choose adoption and save a life.
WE ARE BACK at the Petco in Schaumburg for our Saturday adoption event from 10-12!

Foster a dog.

Volunteer your heart and your home.  Help our rescued dogs feel safe and secure until we find a loving family.

Train your dog.

CDR training is on Wednesday nights in the Spring/Summer and Sunday mornings in the Fall/Winter at the Medinah Park District Gymnasium. For the most up to date training schedule please visit our events calendar.
