Foster a pet

One of the challenges we face as a small rescue group is that we can only take in dogs that we have foster homes for. Many of these poor animals are waiting on “death row” and fostering is an incredible experience. It allows you to save a life, give love and nurturing to an animal that may have been abused or neglected and, lastly, helping them get to their permanent, forever home. It is through foster homes that more animals are given the chance at life they deserve.


Hope Pet Rescue has adoption events on weekends and by appointment. In tow are the most adorable animals available for adoption. Check back for Hope Pet Rescue news and upcoming events.


We are avid promoters of the spay/neuter effort in order to avoid pet overpopulation, and the overall animal welfare cause. We save animals from high kill shelters all over Illinois as well as Chicago Animal Care and Control.


We are looking for volunteers to transport our animals as needed to vet appointments and to our adoption events. We provide the carriers for them to travel in and dates/times are flexible!


Our rescued animals are kept in foster homes until they are adopted. Being in a home environment benefits them tremendously as they are not under stress, not susceptible to diseases commonly found in shelters or pounds, and we get a sense of their personality and traits. This also teaches them they can trust humans who will love and care for them.
