Roll Over Animal Rescue, Inc. (ROAR) is an Illinois licensed, non-profit rescue originating in 2011. The cofounders have been active volunteers in dog rescue for many years. We receive our dogs from open admissions shelters that have to make room for new dogs when full or similar life-threatening situations. Since 60% of the dogs in animal control shelters lack basic obedience training and house manners, ROAR's focus is to help our dogs learn to be valued and loved family members. They live in our foster homes while they get the training and medical care they need. We have a certified dog trainer as one of our volunteers and we don't hesitate to hire behavior specialists as needed. We do not have a building for kenneling dogs as this would not be conducive to our goals. We get to know each of our foster dogs and hope to retain lasting relationships with the people who adopt them.
To adopt a dog, please visit our main website, Roar4dogs.org for an application and the simple adoption process. Bookmark ROAR at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/IL673.html (or type ROAR.Petfinder.com to find our petfinder page again) to keep checking the dogs we have available. We try hard to keep it up to date. Dogs are moved to the Happy Tails section as soon as they are adopted. If you see a dog as available on our Petfinder or website, he/she is most likely available. Send us your application and we can get the ball rolling!
