My personal message:


Hi Friends,

For seven years now, I've leaned on you this time of year to help me raise the funds we need to keep CCR going. You have never let the shelter pups down, and each year as the Mutt Strut approaches, I'm overcome with gratitude to you, both for your generosity to the shelter dogs, and also, for your constant support of me in my role here at the shelter.  This year, I lost a very important member of my cheering squad - my beloved hound, Bunsen.  He was my first rescue, and it's no understatement to say that he was the center of my world.  Often after a tough day at the shelter, Bunsen's hugs and drooly kisses gave me the strength to get up and do it all over again, day after day, and year after year.  His passing has left me with a huge hole in the center of my family.  But, as anyone who's loved a dog so deeply knows, it's also inspired me to keep working hard for other dogs in need, in the hopes that they will all have an opportunity to complete a lucky family like Bunsen did for mine.  It's not enough to rescue a dog from death - to me, they're not truly saved until they are at the center of a loving family.  With your help, and in Bunsen's honor, I promise to make this a reality for all the pups I possibly can!

Help me reach my fundraising goal for Chicago Canine Rescue's

14th Annual Mutt Strut on October 7th, 2017!

These dogs, and many others, would not survive or have a second chance at finding their forever home without us.


We may not be there to walk them, treat their medical conditions or assist with new adopter selection, but WE CAN make a financial contribution...ensuring that the team at Chicago Canine Rescue can keep up their good work and help even more dogs because of your generosity. 

Adoptable Dogs 2015


I'm passionate about this group. 

Chicago Canine Rescue has rehabilitated and rehomed over 6,100 dogs! Their mission is to save the lives of injured, neglected and unloved, homeless dogs in the Chicago area and from around the Midwest.

Dogs who would make perfectly good friends and family members, but just need someone to save them. To give them a chance. A chance to survive. A chance to love. A chance to be loved.




Chicago Canine Rescue (CCR) was founded in 2001 to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in Chicago.  Their dedicated organization has saved over 6,100 dogs and cats over the years, and I want that number to continue to grow!

Ever wonder what happens to shelter animals who are not perfect, are considered too young, too old, too sick or who have special needs?  Traditionally, these animals may not have had a chance at other shelters.  CCR helps some of the Midwest’s most vulnerable – dogs with broken bones, older dogs that require dentals, moms with nursing pups, blind dogs, dogs with heartworm disease, skin problems and infections.  Help me give these deserving pups a second leash on life!  

CCR's shelter is located at 5272 N. Elston Ave, in Chicago and provides these animals with a safe haven. However, none of it is possible without donations & contributions from our community and people like you.

Please show your support, in honor of our walking to save lives, by pledging to the pups to help me reach my fundraising goal. Any amount will help make a difference in the life of a needy animal!
