Chicago Cat Rescue is dedicated to helping homeless cats through rescue, adoption, and the education of their human companions.
Founded in 1996 by a small group of willful women, Chicago Cat Rescue is an all-volunteer, foster based, not-for-profit cat rescue. Whether they come to us from the streets or high-kill facilities, our goals remain the same; to meet our cats' medical, physical and emotional needs, and to place them in GOOD homes-for-life. All our cats are cared for in loving, private foster homes. Our foster parents attend to not only our cats' daily needs, but the information they gain about our cats' personalities and temperaments is of invaluable assistance as we work to place our cats in forever homes. All of CCR's resources are obtained via our fundraising efforts, and our overhead is minimal. Almost all our dollars go toward food and medical care for our cats. CCR offers volunteers a plethora of volunteer opportunities, from signing on to become a Foster Parent Extraordinaire, to event planning and participation, fundraising, creative writing, photography, grant writing and accounting - to name a few! As we are all volunteers, Chicago Cat Rescue takes enormous pride in the value and meaning of volunteerism. If you have a love for animals, please contact us to discuss how your interests and talents can benefit the homeless cats of Chicago!
