Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:NLOL only adopts our dogs within Illinois and a 60 mi radius of Chicago (Chicago and suburbs.)
About Our Rescue Group:NLOL Chicago is an entirely volunteer run, nonprofit organization committed to finding loving homes for shelter dogs who would otherwise be euthanized.
Through our adoption, foster and education programs, NLOL Chicago addresses the nationwide issue of pet overpopulation and the importance of spay/neuter, and also tackles local concerns such as Chicago's dog fighting epidemic. The goal of NLOL Chicago is that of consistent advocacy for those forgotten animals - speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
NLOL Chicago does not discriminate by age or breed. Our adoption fee is $250, and our dogs are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped prior to adoption.

Our Adoption Process:Since it our desire that you have a pet that can enjoy a lifetime of love with you, we take special measure to ensure that the pet is the best match for you and your family. We have set up the following procedures for anyone wishing to adopt one of our animals:
Fill out an adoption application
This helps us understand more about you and your lifestyle.
Be contacted by a New Leash On Life representative.
Have a Home Check to insure the home is safe for the animal.
Sign an Adoption Contract.
Make a tax deductible donation. (We ask for $200 minimum for dogs and puppies.)
Our pets generally are up to date on all vaccinations and have been spayed or neutered (in the case of puppies, they may not have their entire set of shots).
