Our primary focus at the Rescue Center is to assist with the overcrowding at our local intake facilities. However, we do accept a limited number of owner surrenders as space allows. Please read the guidelines below - if you believe your animal would be a good fit for our program, you may complete the owner surrender request form below. We will respond within 48 hours if we are able to potentially assist. If you do not hear back from us, we are unable to assist that animal.
IMPORTANT: The Rescue Center only accepts friendly, social, family pets into our program. We do not work with animals who show aggression towards humans or other animals, nor are we able to assist with major behavioral issues (such as severe separation anxiety in dogs or lack of litter box usage in cats). Due to the overwhelming pitbull overpopulation issues in Chicago and the Midwest, we are not able to accept or relocate pitbulls at this time. If you believe the animal you need to surrender is a right fit for our program, please complete the form below.
