As a licensed Illinois dog rescue serving the Chicagoland area, our primary mission is to rescue good dogs from bad situations and find them loving forever homes, providing the needed veterinary care, training and TLC along the way. Our focus has always been on rescuing Chicagoland’s greatest “underdogs.” As a result, many of the dogs we rescue are pit bulls. However, we do occasionally rescue other breeds and we’ve even rescued and adopted out cats in extreme need. Our secondary mission is to keep pets out of the shelter/rescue system entirely by providing high-risk pet owners with resources that allow them to keep their pets. This includes food, veterinary care, and access to professional dog trainers. In addition, we work to educate the public about responsible dog ownership and about the breed, while advocating against dog fighting and other forms of animal cruelty.
