It Takes a Village

Chicago Rescue Authority does not fund veterinary care for privately owned dogs or dogs in other rescues. We realize, all too well, the costs of providing needed or emergency care for your pet, but our financial resources are limited and only can be used on the dogs in our care. Below is a listing of local, regional and national organizations which may be able to assist you in this time of need.

*Please note that while this can be useful in a pinch, it is important to read the fine print and understand the sometimes predatory practices that emergency financing cards like these can include.
