We are happy to report that we are back open as usual! Lab results have confirmed that our under-the-weather pup does NOT have the canine flu – we were just being cautious :) Come on out and see us for our regular visiting hours!
We want you to know how VERY MUCH your hard work at all our summer fests has meant for pups like Mollie, above – thanks to all of your HUGE efforts at the beer tents, we have been able to get this girl a much needed dental surgery – check out her big beautiful smile! And that’s just the beginning – the tips you work so hard to earn for these sweeties means we’re able to continue taking in the most in-need dogs in our community, as well as continue providing a second chance for desperate dogs from our rural partners. There’s no end in sight to the dogs in need of our help – that’s why it’s MISSION CRITICAL that we make the most of the summer months, and knock these beer tents out of the park! Taste of Lincoln, at the end of the month, is often one of our biggest opportunities to raise life-saving tips for the doggies – will you help us keep this summer rolling and come out to help?
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.
