Hello Animal Lover!

I know what you’re thinking…another donation request and sponsorship opportunity.

But listen. This one REALLY matters!! 

Okay, all charity fundraisers matter. However, what’s different about this request is that when you support the efforts of Chicago Canine Rescue, you are helping the lives of both dogs AND people! It’s a win-win, because having a dog in your life has massive health benefits.


Chicago Canine Rescue has rescued and rehabilitated over 5,000 dogs so that’s a lot of happy, healthy people AND dogs because of their efforts!


On a more serious note, I’m reaching out because Chicago Canine Rescue’s mission is to save the lives of injured, neglected and unloved, homeless dogs in the Chicago area and from around the Midwest.


Dogs who would make perfectly good friends and family members, but just need someone to save them. To give them a chance. A chance to survive. A chance to love. A chance to be loved.  


Today, I invite you to join Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation, a 501(c )3 not for profit organization in their most important fundraiser of the year by becoming a Sponsor or Donor to the 12th annual MUTT STRUT!


On Saturday, Oct 17, 2015, hundreds of dog lovers will fill the streets of Wrigleyville in Chicago for a fun-filled, homecoming themed, block party and 1.5-mile walk. A king + queen will even be crowned!

Below you will find information on becoming a sponsor and other ways to help contribute to this cause. See how your goodwill will directly benefit abandoned dogs with broken bones, senior dogs, dogs with nursing pups, as well as those in need of heartworm treatment, dental surgery or other medical care.

Please help CCR continue its important mission of saving lives and placing animals in loving homes.
