Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, foster-based organization that is largely volunteer-operated. They are dedicated to serving the homeless dogs of Chicagoland, as well as other areas (Oklahoma, Indiana, Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Texas and Michigan). All breeds, ages, sizes and colors are welcomed and loved. SCCR transfers dogs from shelters to specially trained foster homes, provides the dogs with medical care and gives them a new chance for a long and loving life. Their comprehensive adoption process and post-adoption follow-up prevent future mistreatment. Every effort is made to ensure that once a dog is taken in, they are never placed in an unsafe, unwanted or abusive situation.
The Grey Muzzle Organization’s generous grant will allow Second City Canine Rescue (SCCR) to save 10% more senior dogs in 2019 by providing dental exams and periodontal treatments. With grant funding, SCCR will be able to serve 50 senior dogs this year! This grant will help Second City Canine Rescue save more senior dogs like Graham Greene. Graham was found as a stray, wandering the streets hungry, lost and afraid. SCCR took this sweet boy in, provided critical medical and dental care, along with vaccinations. After visiting the vet, he was placed in a foster home and given nutritious food, a soft bed to sleep on, and lots of love and affection. Graham’s personality was so affectionate and lovable that his foster family couldn’t bear to part with him! They adopted him, and he is now living his best life being a foster brother to other senior dogs that are placed temporarily in his home.
