Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. Give.

Midwest Rescue of Illinois, Inc is a small group of caring individuals who are determined to make a positive impact in the lives of pit bulls. We are a volunteer run and foster based rescue.

Volunteer run? Yes, we are all volunteers of Midwest Rescue. The board members and volunteers are not paid; each individual that supports Midwest Rescue also has a full-time job. We do this in our free time because we care.

Want to volunteer? GREAT! Attend an adoption day and other local events. Organize a fundraiser. Help with the daily operating activities. Let us put your skills and talents to work.

Foster based? This means Midwest Rescue does not have a shelter or facility. We rely solely on caring individuals to open their homes, providing a loving, structured home life for our dogs. Midwest pays for the food, crate and vetting for a dog within our rescue. Fosters provide a healthy, caring home environment, in addition to playing a key role in helping a dog find the perfect home.

This limits how many dogs we can have in rescue at any one time. We can’t accept more dogs than we have homes and funds for.

Adopt? We are looking for loving families and owners to give our dogs the great homes they deserve. We work closely with people to make sure the dog they want to adopt is the right “fit” for them.

Give! We run completely on your donations. Midwest Rescue of Illinois, Inc does not receive funding from the State or Federal government. The monies that people like you donate provide Midwest with the power to save more lives.
