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.


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!
