Rescue Riders Cooperative is a group of rescues across the southeast that are linked together by our love of animals and our desire to see as many as possible in the loving arms of a new family. Each rescue is independently run but realizing that there is strength in numbers, we have formed a cooperative to work together to place as many animals as possible.
Not only do the rescues save these animals and give them badly needed health care but they also work tirelessly in their home communities to help educate people regarding the importance of spay & neuter and how it reduces pet overpopulation.
When you adopt one of their dogs you help with this mission. We all thank you for that support and for opening your home and heart to an animal who needs you. You are a hero!
Our rescues generally do not have an actual shelter building in the Chicago area. This means it is often not possible to meet these babies prior to their adoption however all of these rescues have been rehoming dogs to the North East for many years and are happy to offer you references who can fill you in on their experience and how well the process works.
There is generally a money-back guarantee and a mechanism for returning the dog to the rescue if needed. All these rescues then work to re-home the animal. None are returned to a shelter. We never leave a rescue behind!
