Foster pets looking for FUR-ever Homes We are a group of middle school students from North Park Elementary School interested in helping foster pets find their FURever homes. We are helping foster animals as opposed to shelter animals because when one foster animal gets their FURever home, the foster parent can host another one, freeing up space in the shelters, resulting in more lives saved. On this website you will find the descriptions of cats and dogs along with their idea of their perfect home. If you are interested in adopting one of these animals, please go to our Contact Us page. We would love to get every animal on this website into their FURever home.
The cats and dogs that are featured on our site are all fosters from Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control (FCACC), The Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation and Peace for Pits. All of these non-profit organizations are committed to saving the lives and helping the thousands of animals that come into their custody every year. Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) is located at 2741 S. Western Ave. Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation is located at 5272 N. Elston Ave. Peace for Pitsis a Chicago area shelterless rescue that pulls dogs from high kill shelters and places them in foster homes to prepare them for their forever homes.
Chicago Animal Care and Control: The City of Chicago takes in thousands of unwanted animals every year from citizens, brings stray animals in off the streets, and provides care for evidence animals in court cases. Contrary to perception, most of these animals are wonderful, loving companion animals–they simply have nowhere else to go. And that’s why Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control was founded - to provide help for as many of those unfortunate animals as we possibly can. FCACC does it by:
Providing food, medical care and adoption opportunities for ACC animals in their foster program.
Educating people about the proper care of their animals.
Advocating humane treatment of all animals.
Gifting the city shelter with resources the city budget doesn’t cover.
Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation: CCRF was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in our city. CCRF has saved the lives of over 3,000 dogs, cats, kittens (yes, we have started helping a few felines each year, too!) and puppies. CCRF assists the animals that are the MOST vulnerable in our city – the dogs and cats that are slated for euthanasia because they are too old, too young, too injured, have disabilities, or have simply been overlooked for too long by potential adopters at other shelters.
Peace for Pits: Peace for Pits is a Chicago area based registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which functions as a rescue that focuses on finding loving, caring homes for “bully” breeds in need of help. Many of these dogs come from “high kill” facilities across Illinois, arriving there as a stray or unfathomably being surrendered by their so called “owners.” Some of these dogs arrive with severe injuries and other health problems due to neglect and or trauma. Their mission is to save as many of these dogs from euthanasia as possible. They are a 100% volunteer run organization, with every dog living in a wonderful foster home from the day it becomes a part of our rescue until the day they get adopted into an amazing forever home. The students of NPES are proud to be helping these outstanding organizations!!:
