Our Mission

Illinois Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit, no-kill animal rescue group. We are a coalition of rescuers, transporters, fosters, vets, humane societies, investigators and shelters that advocate for and save homeless animals throughout the state of Illinois while educating the general public on the humane treatment of animals and the need for comprehensive spay and neutering programs. Illinois Animal Rescue, Inc. is 501(c)(3), not for profit and no-kill.

We work every day to eliminate needless deaths and inhumane treatment of all animals in the state of Illinois. Our goals are to ensure that every animal is treated with the respect that they deserve; to educate our communities on the importance of spaying or neutering their pets to solve the pet overpopulatio

Adoption Policy

Some of our adoptable pets are located throughout Illinois in foster homes. Some are still awaiting rescue and adoption in facilites where they most likely, will be scheduled to be euthanized. If you are interested in 'Rescuing' and adopting one of these pets, please fill out an adoption application here or contact: to receive an adoption application via e-mail. An adoption coordinator will then review your application and contact you within 24 hours.


Illinois Animal Rescue is foster based only, but we are at adoption events nearly every weekend.
