Ever Wonder?

Ever wonder what happens to shelter dogs that are not perfect, are considered too young, too old, too sick or who have special needs? Or those who are simply out of time and options, overlooked by potential adopters?
Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation exists to give many of these animals a second chance at a forever family. We love the underdog!  CCRF was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in our city. To date, we have proudly saved the lives of over 6,000 dogs, cats, kittens (yes, we have started helping a few felines each year, too!) and puppies.  The dogs in our care come to us from open-intake facilities, from a handful of rural partners who lack the resources for adoptions, and from families who for a variety of reasons, can no longer care for them.  Our team provides specialized medical treatment, emotional and behavioral support, and adoption services to each animal that comes into our care.
CCRF assists the animals that are the MOST vulnerable in our city – the dogs and cats that are searching for a home because they are too old, too young, too injured, have disabilities or have simply been overlooked for too long by potential adopters at other shelters. While special needs dogs have a huge place in our hearts and our program, many of the dogs CCRF assists are healthy, family dogs who lost their homes purely due to circumstances.  We provide a safe landing place for dogs of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds, and work hard to match them with their perfect family.
You can help even if you can’t adopt.
