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!
