About Strawberry Fields Animal Rescue Illinois


646 Meadow Ln, Winthrop Harbor, IL 60096, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide refuge for senior dogs and dogs needing hospice care. We aim to provide education, assistance and support to the public to help people better understand and care for their companion animals. We do more than just rescue, we DRIVE change.


The vision for SFAR was born in February 2019. The founder adopted a thirteen year old, blind and deaf, shepherd named Lizzy from an animal shelter. After she adopted Lizzy she decided to make SFAR a rescue for senior dogs and dogs needing hospice care. Senior animals in shelters are most at risk for euthanasia and are often times overlooked. At SFAR we believe all senior dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives in comfort and peace. After two years of hard work and dedication, the board of directors came together and the rescue started to take off. Our 501c3 nonprofit status is officially pending. After our nonprofit status is approved, we can apply for our animal rescue license through the Department of Agriculture. SFAR will be 100% foster based, we do not have a facility at this time. SFAR not only will rescue senior dogs but also will strive to educate the public about animal welfare and animal health. We believe rescue and education go hand in hand. We want to keep as many dogs out of the shelters as possible by educating people about their companion animals and the importance of neutering and spaying. SFAR is also going to implement a community assistance program to help underserved communities with pet food, vaccines and low cost medical care.
