Chicagoland Dog Rescues


I am a huge dog lover and firmly believe in adopting dogs from rescues or shelters.  If you can’t adopt consider volunteering or donating – most rescues are 100% volunteer based and can only operate based off charitable donations and fundraisers.

Our dog Murphy was a stray that we fostered and then adopted – we just couldn’t let him go. Fostering is a rewarding experience and I highly encourage you to do it! Rescues give you all the supplies needed – you just need to give them a home with lots of love.  Need help getting started?  Reach out to me or some of these great rescues below!


K94Keeps, NFP belives that bringing a dog into your family should be forever. We are a 100% volunteer run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to dog rescue. We believe rescue should begin with education and community involvement. We strive to place dogs in homes that will provide a safe, loving environment. We work with adopters throughout the adoption process to promote a positive, forever relationship. K94Keeps rescues dogs from open-access shelters in Chicago and the surrounding areas. We sometimes have owners who surrender their dogs directly to us as well. All dogs are provided housing, vetting, foster, and adoption services. Instagram: @k94keeps

Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue

Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue (CBBR) is a 501c3 not-for-profit-organization with a 20 year history of rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing so-called “bully breed” dogs—American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, American Bulldogs, and other bully mixes. It is our mission not only to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned dogs, but to rehabilitate the reputation of the bully breeds, which has been tarnished by dog fighting and irresponsible ownership, and to improve the quality of life for these dogs and the people who care for and love them.
