Chicago Canine Rescue is looking for loving homes to temporarily foster dogs in need!


Foster parents provide temporary housing, care, love, and training to their foster dog while CCR finds their forever home. It’s a safe place for a newly rescued dog to rest, recuperate, and recover while they wait for the perfect place to come along!

By fostering, you can help us save more lives – fostering makes space at the shelter for more dogs in need, as well as providing our dogs with the happiest, healthiest experience possible for their stay in “the system.”


If you can open your home and heart to a dog for even a couple of weeks at a time, you can help save a life! Please fill out the application to get started today.
