About Our Rescue Group...
We are a group of women dedicated to helping animals who need rescue, medical care, rehabilitation, love, and of course a Furever home.
We donate our time to help make a difference in the lives of animals in the Chicagoland area and sometimes out of state. Each animal is fully vetted, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped & treated both medically and behaviorally if needed.
We know we cannot save them all but we sure are going to try. Know that we are committed to the ones that we take into our care.
We are a 100% volunteer run, foster based organization. We rely on donations & volunteers to keep saving animals lives.
Our Adoption Process...
We want to emphasize that for us matching the right animal with the right family is very important. We simply want to ensure that everyone involved will have many happy years together.
Here is the breakdown of our application process:
Complete our adoption application and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
We check both your veterinary reference & personal references listed in the application
We do a home visit
We set up a meet and greet with all family members and the potential new animal
Once approved, you fill out and sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee
Bring your new furry friend home!
The adoption process can take just a couple of weeks to upwards of a month. For animals that have received a number of applications, it can take a little time for our adoption coordinators to sort through them all. Remember, we are volunteer-run so all of this work is being done after the workday and on the weekends.
We hope that you will be patient with us while we help you to find your perfect match! You may not be the only one interested in adopting a particular animal. In these cases, we go by who applied first while also doing our best to match dogs with homes that will be the perfect fit.
If you don’t get your first choice, don’t worry! We have plenty of amazing animals in need of loving homes and we save more every week. Take your time, your new pal is out there!
Fuever Rescue is a volunteer run organization that relies completely on private donations and our own fund raising abilities to operate. We receive no federal, state, or government funding, nor do we receive funds from any national animal welfare organizations.
The fee collected upon a dog’s adoption goes toward offsetting the costs involved in providing care for our dogs and toward preparing them for placement into a new home.
Our adoption fee* is $350 for dogs 3 years old or younger and $300 for dogs 4 years old and older. The adoption fee covers vaccinations (Rabies, Bordetella, DAPP), de-worming, vetting, microchip, transport and animals that are old enough at the time of adoption will also be spayed or neutered.
As a completely volunteer-run organization, every dollar goes toward saving lives. We have no overhead costs and no paid employees. To make a donation to help support veterinary care for a dog in need, please click here.
* Please note: our fee is non-refundable. This is also noted in our Adoption Contract.
