Our Mission

We’re a coalition of volunteers and professionals including, rescuers, transporters, fosters, veterinarians, humane societies, investigators and shelters that advocate for and save homeless animals throughout the State of Illinois and across the country.

Hoof Woof & Meow Animal Rescue is a registered non profit 501(c)(3) no-kill animal rescue organization. Established in September 2012, we are on a mission to eliminate needless deaths and inhumane treatment of all animals. We are committed to finding forever homes for the animals in our care and educating the general public on the issues of mistreatment and overpopulation as well as the need for comprehensive spay and neutering programs.

“Saving a dog won’t change the world.  But for that dog the world changes forever.”
