Shelters and Rescue Groups
Looking for a new addition to you family? There are a wide variety of shelters and rescue groups in the Chicago area, some specializing in specific breeds, ages, or species, while others accept any pet in need.
Shelter of the Month:
The Buddy Foundation Arlington Heights, IL
A no-kill haven for stray, abused and abandoned animals since 1995, The Buddy Foundation is named for a beloved collie of one of the founders. The Buddy Foundation runs a large no-kill shelter, but pets are placed with foster families whenever possible. If you're looking for a dog, cat, puppy, or kitten, The Buddy Foundation is a great place to start!
Young At Heart - Specializes in mature and senior pets, gives a discount on adoption fees to senior adopters.
Greater Chicago Ferret Association - operates a no-kill ferret shelter - why buy when you can adopt and save a life?
House Rabbit Society of Chicago - rabbit rescue and great information on rabbit care
Critter Corral - specializes in guinea pigs
Greater Chicago Cage Bird Club - a wide variety of pet birds, now available to qualified non-members (but membership is a great resource for any bird owner!)
