GENESIS ANIMAL RESCUE, established in 2001, is an all volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charitable organization who relies on supporters dedicated to rescue.
We are a licensed no-kill animal shelter/foster home organization with the Department of Agriculture for Illinois. Genesis is dedicated to the immediate rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of animals in need, primarily dogs, but not limited to. All incoming animals are given a complete health check upon arrival, and provided ALL necessary medical care. A thorough behavioral evaluation is performed prior to any and all foster stays or eventual adoption into a forever home. After evaluating health and temperment, the animals then begin the process of healing. Severe abuse and neglect are common among our incoming animals. The healing process encompasses both physical as well as psychological healing.
We are based in central IL area, our animals come from local and regional animal control facilities, strays, and occasional owner surrenders. Our group consists of individuals who have donated countless, volunteer hours to the plight of homeless and abused animals. These people open their homes and hearts to act as foster parents until permanent placement is established.
Visits/Adoptions are by appointment only.
