This past weekend, CCR received 17 new arrivals from rural Oklahoma. But as soon as precious Nellie stepped off the van, we could see she was in pain, despite her wagging tail and big, beautiful smile. Nellie was unable to use her left hind leg – and x-rays taken that very afternoon revealed a nasty fracture, dangerously close to her joint. After consulting with our orthopedic surgeon, we learned that sweet Nellie may require multiple surgeries to repair the injury – and that it will be a long road to recovery for this darling girl. Lovely Nellie rode over 900 miles, in unimaginable pain, in the hopes of finding a loving family in Chicago – please help us get her the care she needs to get healthy and on her way home!

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.
