    Second City Canine Rescue
    Funded from 2019 to 2023


    SCCR’s mission is to rescue and place homeless dogs into permanent, loving homes. SCCR believes in rescuing responsibly℠, investing time and effort into their dogs to ensure they are ready to be part of a family and placed with adopters who match their temperament and energy level. This ensures each dog has the best chance of finding their forever family. Based in the western suburbs of Chicago, SCCR has saved more than 5,300 dogs since its inception in 2011. All breeds, ages, sizes, and colors are welcomed and loved. 

    Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) will provide 87 senior dogs with needed medical and dental care, placing them in loving foster homes while they await adoption. The grant will help dogs like eight-year-old Elle, who needed several masses removed and biopsied and is fighting a tick-borne illness. Despite her age and health issues, Elle is a wonderful houseguest with her foster family, who report that she politely uses an “inside hound voice” and loves every human and dog she meets. Elle has love to give an adopter and looks forward to finding her forever home.
