We at Chicago Canine Rescue could not be more excited to tell everyone that we are launching a fundraising program with the a hot new App designed to help rescue groups and shelters.  AND, the creator of the Pose A Pet™ App is one of our long time volunteers!!

7 years ago, professional pet photographer Jennifer Whaley, started volunteering to photograph Chicago Canine Rescue’s adoptable animals.  All of us in rescue know that better animals photos = more adoptions.  After photographing 1,000 of Chicago Canine Rescue’s adoptable animals and seeing real results, Jennifer thought that there must be a way to bring great photo taking tools to animal rescues worldwide.  So, she created the Pose A Pet™ app!

Today we are announcing ‘The Chicago Canine Rescue and Pose A Pet 50/50 plan!’  Starting today, Pose A Pet™ will share 50% of all upgrade fees from anywhere in the world for an entire week with Chicago Canine Rescue!   And the other 50% goes right back into creating new technology solutions designed to rescue more animals!

Please download, share and keep on rescuing animals!

Ever wonder what happens to shelter dogs that are not perfect, are considered too young, too old, too sick or who have special needs?

Traditionally, these animals were automatically euthanized at area shelters. However, today, Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation exists to give many of these animals a second chance, too!

CCRF was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in our city. CCRF has saved the lives of over 3,000 dogs, cats, kittens (yes, we have started helping a few felines each year, too!) and puppies.

CCRF assists the animals that are the MOST vulnerable in our city – the dogs and cats that are slated for euthanasia because they are too old, too young, too injured, have disabilities, or have simply been overlooked for too long by potential adopters at other shelters.
