Chicagoland Dog Rescue is a volunteer based, shelter-less rescue. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, socializing and placing homeless dogs into permanent homes – regardless of breed, size or age.

How We Operate
We’re a shelter-less, no-kill rescue. Most of our dogs are in foster homes around the Chicagoland area. Our dream is to one day have a shelter where uninterrupted socialization will be the norm. Until then, we rely on volunteers to shelter dogs in their own homes in an effort to reduce the staggering amount of euthanasia that take place daily in the kill shelters that we rescue our dogs from. With very limited resources we vaccinate, socialize and responsibly rehome these loving dogs as quickly as possible.
We are a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and all donations are tax-deductible! Please consider supporting Chicagoland Dog Rescue with a monetary or in-kind donation using the links above.

Dogs that Find A Home with Us Within 3 weeks
Over 15 years ago, a group of people who had been doing rescue work on their own realized that they could achieve more as a team, so they combined forces and formed Chicagoland Dog Rescue. Now 50 volunteers strong, we rescue and rehome more than 100 dogs each year. Our mission is to rescue dogs that are homeless, abandoned or who otherwise suffer at the hands of cruel or ignorant people, regardless of their breed, size, age or reason.
