Sit a Dog, Save a Life
Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Chicago donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Chicago.
Animal Welfare LeagueThe Animal Welfare League is committed to helping every pet find a good home. Their motto is "recovery is the answer, not euthanasia" for animals that come to us injured, neglected, or abused.
Everyday the Animal Welfare League saves animals lives and works to improve the way they are treated and regarded by society. In the Chicagoland area, they help all animals through their adoption programs, their low cost clinic services, their local cruelty investigations, and their public education programs. Locally they work to improve municipal, city and state laws and regulations regarding the treatment of animals and operate the state’s largest non-profit animal shelter program. They have made progress since our beginning in 1935, but much more work needs to be done.
Chicago Animal AdvocatesChicago Animal Advocates is a not for profit foster based rescue. They are 100% volunteer run. They rescue animals from high kill shelters in Illinois and Kentucky. They also take in owner relinquishments that otherwise would end up at a county shelter. All of their animals stay in the comfort of a loving foster home until they are adopted out. They believe in advocating the importance of spays and neuters and the general care of animals. Their goal is to set up fundraisers and help low income zip codes with the costs to fix their animals. Overpopulated shelters offer little time for animals to be rescued, and many do not get a second chance at life. Their number one goal is rescue and prevention.
Forever Friends Great Dane RescueForever Friends Great Dane Rescue was founded by a small group of people dedicated to the Great Dane breed. Their goal is to help neglected, abandoned, and abused Great Danes find their forever homes while educating the public about the breed and responsible pet ownership. They believe that every animal deserves a forever family to love them unconditionally for the rest of their lives.
FFGDR is a foster based rescue. All of the dogs that come in to their care are placed in loving homes while awaiting adoption. They are given all medical treatment/visits that needs to be done as well as being taken in and loved as though they are part of that family. Their foster homes are able to observe the Foster Danes in a home environment with children, other dogs, other pets, and daily stresses and triggers. Their foster homes work with the Danes on any obedience or negative behaviors to start the training process for you. Their foster homes are never short on love, attention or patience to spread to the foster dogs while in their care.
Heartland Animal ShelterHeartland Animal Shelter’s mission is to find permanent, loving homes for homeless animals and promote responsible pet ownership through education, community outreach and collaboration while maintaining respect and compassion for all creatures.
Heartland is a no-kill animal shelter and a non-profit, 501 c 3 organization. They provide food, shelter, medical treatment and loving care until homeless animals can find their forever home. Please help them save the lives of these wonderful animals by making a tax-deductible donation today.
