Chicago Pit Stop Rescue

Help us save dogs from Chicago's high kill shelters

Issue Area: Animals , Public Benefit
Non-profit Status: 501(c)3
Mission:
Chicago Pit Stop Rescue is a 501(c)(3) approved, foster based dog rescue focusing its efforts on the city's high kill shelter, Chicago Animal Care and Control. We are dedicated to rescuing "pit bull" or "bully" breed type dogs (as visually identified by shelter staff and volunteers, however, since there is no standard criteria used by all, "pit mix" really amounts to what we would call a "shelter dog"). After we pull a dog from the shelter, we provide them with a loving "pit stop" - which includes full vetting and a spot in a foster home - while on their way to their forever home. While we aim to save as many dogs as possible, our mission is to save as many dogs as we can while providing them with top notch vetting, treatment and training as we recognize those to be key elements in the dog finding a forever home.
Specific Needs:
Chicago Pit Stop Rescue is a 501(c)(3) approved foster-based rescue pulling urgent "bully breed" dogs from high kill shelters in the Chicagoland area. The dogs are placed into loving foster homes, serving as a 'pit stop' until we are able to match them with their perfect forever home. With the amount of dogs we pull, we are in constant need of supplies - from dog specific items, furniture (some of the puppies were figuring out potty training on our couches:)) to items we are able to auction off to raise donations. All help is appreciated!
