We can only consider applicants who live in Illinois, Southeast Wisconsin (Madison & Milwaukee south), or Northwest Indiana (South Bend & Rensselaer west).

We do not adopt dogs to families who live outside this geographical area and we do not "ship" rescue dogs. All applicants within this geographical area must be able to physically travel to northern Illinois to meet/adopt a rescue dog. We like to keep our rescue dogs near us for peace of mind and post-adoption follow-up. There are shelter dogs in every state dying for good homes, therefore it is not practical for us to go through extraordinary efforts to place a dog several hundred miles away. We do not make exceptions to this policy under any circumstances.

Please call the shelter or contact phone number given with each listing for more information. Please consider being a temporary care home!

There are no shelter postings at this time.

Our continuing efforts depend on monetary donations,
temporary care homes, and volunteers.
