Famous Fido Rescue founded to raise the profile of the problem‚ and to forge an alliance with other like-minded individuals, organizations and shelters to hasten an end to the countless deaths of Chicago land's adoptable companion animals caused by overpopulation‚ and a chronic inability to match up animals in a timely manner with loving guardians. Famous Fido Rescue is inspired by the fact that other cities have significantly reduced the problem and the suffering‚ and firmly believe that Chicago land can be a model city for stewardship and compassion.

The Rescue and Adoption Alliance Campaign was established to focus attention on finding fosters and great homes for the dogs residing at the Famous Fido.
