Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation exists to give many of these animals a second chance at a forever family. We are committed to leaving no dog behind.
CCR was founded in 2001 to help find lifelong, loving homes for homeless dogs in Chicagoland and beyond. To date, we have proudly saved the lives of over 7,000 dogs and puppies (and the occasional cat, too!). The dogs in our care come to us from open-intake animal shelter facilities, from a handful of rural partners who lack the resources for adoptions, and from families who can no longer care for them. Our team provides medical treatment, emotional and behavioral support, and adoption services to each animal that comes into our care.
We provide a safe landing place for dogs of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds, and we work tirelessly to match them with their perfect family.
You can help even if you can’t adopt. Donors, volunteers, fosters, and advocates all make our mission possible!
