Second City Canine Rescue’s mission is to rescue homeless animals and responsibly place them into permanent, loving homes.
Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) is an all-volunteer dog rescue organization. We are dedicated to serving the homeless dogs of Chicagoland, as well as branching out to other areas (such as Indiana, Kentucky, Southern Illinois, & Michigan) – wherever homeless dogs & puppies need us. There are NO paid members of our organization, and every penny donated goes directly toward helping the dogs in our care.
We are extremely selective about the dogs we place and temperament test each and every adult dog prior to its entry into our program. Our goal is to responsibly place dogs with solid temperaments that will make loving family pets.
We rely solely on foster homes to house our dogs – we do not have a shelter or a kennel that we use regularly. These foster homes are the backbone and heart of our organization – without them, we would not be able to save any animals at all. Adoptable animals will live in a foster home until they find their permanent home.
SCCR does NOT discriminate. All breeds, ages, sizes, and colors are welcomed and loved.
We are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit with no paid members.
