Chicagoland Dog Rescue. I Think they're great. They really do the best in pre-addoption medical, emotional and training, well before the dogs start their adoption process. They stand behind all their adoptions well after they've been completed. Proud papa over two rescued and pround uncle of four. The happiest pets are those that have been rescued. Check it out, I'm sure you'll agree. Keep them tails wagging. :D

Kamaka is our 2nd rescue dog. Roxy- our first - was the most amazing Rottie. Kamaka - a pit/ridge is the most social, friendly, loving, and gentle animal now that she knows she has a forever home with us. They are worth every ounce of love you give them - they both have been/are the most loyal loving animals. I will always adopt - they give so much more back to you than you give to them.

I only ever have rescue cats. There is never a need to buy any pet, people only breed animals for money.

The people in the co-op up the road hate me. Every time someone puts up a notice for animals for sale I take it down and point out to them it is part of their company policy NOT to sell animals.

Just adopted my dog Max. He was taken away from his previous owner who used to cut him. Hard to believe there are such cruel people in the world. He's the best dog I've ever had.

I have two Newfies from pups but had two rescue Newfies but lost one within three weeks of reforming due to the life she had led at a puppy farm but Millie has come on beautifully and then we have a little terrorist seriously cute though and within the same week we reformed Rosie the Saint Bernard who after a lot of issues has developed into a loving trusting girl. Do people realise what issues they create with not caring or abandoning these intelligent creatures they only want some one to care and love them.

My Brewster was about 6 or 7 years old when we adopted him a year ago. Now he is my "BOO" and in his forever home. He replaces Lil' Man, and later there will be another rescue of an older dog that needs a home as long as I have a place.

after living 40 years with adopted animals I really recomend anyone to do so. you help the animals, of course, but 1st of all they help YOU to live a better life. here in germany christmas will be a desaster as any year because of the "puppy gifts" under the christmastree :( ANIMALS ARE NO TOYS!

My mum always has "rescue" dogs (personally I prefer to think that WE rescue HER). Unfortunately I decided to run after her one day when she went to work, and haven't been able to get home since! At least she has my brother, Ollie, a beautiful cavvy (not as beautiful as me but not too bad) to console her in her grief. Hopefully I will find my way home one day and we can be our happy, complete family again.

I have 3 spca dogs , two of them spaniels. They are the most loyal , lovable companionship one can get , they all sleep in my room at night on their special dog beds. I had to house train Benji the black spaniel male and this was achieved in record time of 4/5 days , I adore my pets and hope you spread the message to all animal lovers x.
