About the NonprofitVisit Our Website
Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation is a 501c3, no-kill animal shelter in the City of Chicago. Founded in 2001, we have proudly saved the lives of over 8,000 dogs who would otherwise be homeless, and worse, euthanized.
We take into our care dogs from kill shelter facilities who have such a high intake count, they do not have the space nor resources to maintain a no-kill facility. We also partner with and house rescued animals from national animal rescue agencies who serve to bust illegal puppy mills across the country. Additionally, we have a network of affiliate partners in rural areas we support who lack the resources to operate an adoption program and seek our help.
Our small but mighty team provides medical treatment, emotional and behavioral support, adoption and foster program services to each animal that comes into our care; in addition to running the long list of day-to-day responsibilities of our shelter such as cleaning, feeding, walking the animals, and so much more.
