Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation’s Dog Park in the Sky is a special way to honor those that are gone from our lives but never absent from our hearts.
By giving a donation to CCR as a tribute to a loved one, the fate of thousands of the most vulnerable animals in our city can be changed in their honor.
For a donation of $100 or more, your beloved pet’s photo and a memorial message will be posted as a permanent tribute to a beloved life. You may also gift this memorial to a friend or loved one so they may honor their own pet.
To make your donation and add your memorial picture,
Boomer (formerly Victor), adopted in 2008. Passed the rainbow bridge in October 2021. We miss him so.

Chapo thought breakfast should be steak and eggs, lunch should be steak and dessert must be peanut butter. He believed the snow was made for him to run around in for hours. He was suddenly taken from his Mom, Mika, due to a tumor.

Our Prairie girl was beautiful and smart, but she also had a silly fun side. She loved everyone she met. Our dear girl will forever be in our hearts, but now I’m sure she is running free. We love you Prairie. -Shannon and Ryan
Nala was a sweet, beautiful, smart Chow mix, who never let you forget that she was all dog through and through! Nala’s 13+ years with us were amazing, and she never, not once, lost her spirit…even at the end. She was truly loved, and will be missed by many.
Our Hallie passed away this past September 2019. She would have been 13 this June 11th. She had a blessed life but we were more blessed to have had her in our lives.

To my favorite Frisbee buddy. When my daddies adopted me, you were my best-est friend in the whole wide world. We played together, we snuggled together…and we got into trouble together. You were the best big brother a little girl could have. Love you always…your little sister, London.
To my baby Buddy – we will walk together again. Love, Mommy

Bastian, we adopted you 11 years ago and have had an amazing companion ever since. You’ve been there for our family during the highest highs and lowest lows and always showing unconditional love. We miss you so much buddy.

In memory of Biscuit, the best dog anyone could have, ever. For 10 years, you filled our lives with love and joy and smiles and laughter. We wish it could’ve been longer but we know we must be grateful you were with us at all. I close my eyes and imagine you running and romping in a big, beautiful meadow in doggy heaven, with plenty of rabbits and squirrels to chase, and a large, cool swimming hole. We will cherish our precious memories of you forever, and our love for you will never fade. Farewell sweetheart.
You could not have been a better companion. Thank you for all the love Henry. We miss you!

In honor of my sweet girl, Tess. May you continue to shine bright and beautiful, sniff around in the park, get all the treats your heart desires and cuddles galore. You will always be in my heart and I’m always with you. Love and hugs XOXO. RIP, 2006-2021.
Tanka, you gave so much love, comfort and protection to Natalie and Giano. They’ll never forget you.
In memory of Greta
Jack was the best companion who enjoyed long walks and close cuddles. His ears always expressed everything he was thinking and feeling. We will miss his “shark bumps” with his nose to get our attention and his playful attack on treats he was excited about. We are so grateful for the time we had with him and hope he is enjoying endless treats and blankets for burrowing. 💙

How lucky we are to have had a dog that makes saying goodbye so hard. Rest in Peace, sweet little Damen
In Memory of Quincy
Fabio was adopted in September 2017. He came with a list of medical issues but none of it discouraged me once I saw him. I had him only a short 4.5 years but his adorable grumpiness made its way into my heart as if I had him 20 years. He is very very missed by me in so many ways.
