WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT
A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue is a foster based (non-facility) dog and puppy rescue operating in the greater Chicagoland and Rockford areas offering adoption opportunities for all breeds and mixed breeds. A Caring Place is licensed with the state of Illinois' Department of Agriculture and is a licensed 501c3 charity with the Internal Revenue Service.
A Caring Place takes in animals from a variety of sources including those relinquished by owners/guardians and good Samaritans. In addition, we rescue dogs at highest risk of euthanasia from animal control agencies, animal shelters both local and other states, as well as veterinary offices.
Once rescued, at a minimum, we provide each animal entering our adoption program a full veterinary exam, inoculations, neutering, testing for disease and parasites, and microchip. In many cases, more extensive health care is provided due to illness, injury, or neglect. A Caring Place provides this high level of veterinary care because many of the animals we rescue have never had veterinary care or are in poor condition. Because we are not funded by any corporate or governmental source, the only way to pay our vet bills is through charging an adoption fee and through receipt of private donations. Our adoption fees only cover a portion of our veterinary expenses so we always need donations from the public, our adopters, and volunteers to help cover these expenses.
The dogs and puppies in our adoption system can be seen on at least 17 different websites including Petfinder.com and Adoptapet.com. If you would like more information on any of our animals, please contact us by calling 630-375-7976 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
