EMERGENCY – INJURED PUPPY ADMITTED EARLY THIS MORNING!
After-Hours Rescue Saved Mavis’s Life – Now, She Needs Our HELP!
Late last night, we got a call from a caring technician at a local emergency vet – a 3 month old cocker spaniel puppy was in danger of being euthanized.  The puppy had been brought in for limping, and was diagnosed with a fractured femur.  Poor Mavis’s owners told the emergency vet that they did not want a “broken puppy”, and instructed the staff to euthanize this precious girl.  Luckily, the staff was able to contact our shelter manager, and with the help of a whole network of dog lovers, Miss Mavis entered our care early this morning.  This poor pup has been stabilized thanks to the big hearts and quick work of the staff at Midwest Animal Emergency, but she needs orthopedic surgery to fix her poor leg as soon as possible – please help us get this girl the care she needs - DONATE today!

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.
