Wish List

Help Chicago Canine Rescue dedicate our dollars towards rescuing by donating supplies!

New and most gently used items are greatly appreciated. We do have limited storage space, so we have put together a list of the items we need the most.

If the item you wish to donate is not on the list below, please feel free to email us at info@chicagocaninerescue.org or call us at (773) 697-8848 for more information.


Donation drop off is available between the hours of 10AM – 7PM.


You can also purchase items from our Amazon Wish List and have your donation shipped directly to CCR, or you can add Chicago Canine Rescue as your Amazon Smile to make a donation every time you order something from Amazon.
