Chicago Canine Rescue (CCR) was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in Chicago. Over the years, our dedicated organization has saved the lives of over 4,300 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies. CCR helps some of the Midwest’s most vulnerable animals – dogs with broken bones, older dogs that require dentals, moms with nursing pups, blind and deaf dogs, dogs with heartworm disease, skin problems and infections, our list goes on and on. Our larger shelter location at 5272 N. Elston Ave in Chicago provides these vulnerable animals with a safe haven and gives potential adopters a place to come and meet our dogs available for adoption. This year, over &00 animals that were facing euthanasia in other area shelters will instead come through CCR’s doors and receive much needed medical services and find loving families!
