Our Mission

Rescue Warriors Corp’s Mission is to save abandoned animals from being euthanized because of no other reason other than someone not wanting them. We are run by volunteers and generous supporters who have provided their time and financial support to help us with our mission. With the amount of work that is needed to be done we are are always challenged by the large expenses we incur to transport, provide medical treatment, and provide food and shelter for the pets we are able to rescue. We are always in need for donations to help us continue our mission. Your support will help us!

Adoption Process

Many unwanted animals are given a second chance through the Rescue Warriors Corp. The adoption process is a fairly easy process. Once you’ve decided to adopt, note the name of the pet you are interested in and visit the adoption application.

Qualifications/Requirments to adopt include:

  • Up-to-date vaccinations of any other pets.
  • History of being a responsible pet owner.
  • Proof of verified housing
  • Proof of home ownership.
  • Paid deposit.
  • Letter from landlord.
  • State-issued photo ID.

All cats and dogs adopted from Rescue Warriors Corp will be spayed or neutered. If an animal requires surgery, it will remain at on foster care until they are well enough to go home. Microchips are a permanent form of identification implanted between the shoulders of the pet.

Other services included in the adoption fee:

  • Age appropriate vaccinations
  • Flea and tick preventative
  • Worming, heartworm test(dogs 6 months and older)
  • Parvovirus test (puppies under 6 months)

After visiting a local Animal Services on our first day in Texas Jess posted a little something on her personal FB page. Her post resulted in a former RWC foster, Dee, reaching out and asking that we come and check out the pups at Dallas Animal Services. DAS has an average of 600 dogs in their facility on a daily basis with no signs of residency needs slowing down any time soon. We were hopeful that we could help reduce their numbers if at all possible. We already had our sights set on Dallas, a tiny little Chi, from the previous animal service but still had room for one more on our return flight to Chicago.

We are pleased to introduce to you Plano. Plano is a five month old male Chi mix weighing in at 5lbs with the cutest little under bite and wrinkly brow. He was an own surrender that caught out eye as he was shaking in his cell. The more we would call to him the more he would shake.

We are so happy to have busted him free. We will work on building his confidence so he doesn't need to shake anymore. Welcome to the Corp. Plano!

I'ld like to introduce you to Dallas. Dallas is a 1 yr old tiny little female chihuahua that we rescued while we were in Texas. Jenny & I had big plans of sightseeing, the state fair & shopping for Friday, but after trying to narrow down what we were going to do-I suggested maybe we should just go to the animal shelter to see what is available. We looked up the flight requirements & knew if we were going to rescue anything it would have to be pretty tiny in order for us to feel comfortable traveling on the plane with it.

We noticed the closest animal shelter was only a few miles away & we headed out. It didn't take long to find a dog I was interested in- actually there were 3, but we quickly picked Dallas after meeting with her. There was a bed in her cage & she was doing her best to disappear in it & was shaking. She is a tiny little chihuahua, weighing in just under 5 lbs. She is very sweet & loves to be held, we planned on going back to the shelter today to pick her up, but I couldn't imagine her sitting there all weekend, but our hotel was not pet friendly.

After we met Dee & rescued Plano, she offered to foster her as well for the weekend, so yesterday morning we were waiting outside of the shelter when they opened to pick her up.

We noticed Dallas started sniffling not long after we picked her up & it has developed into a small cough so we will be heading off to Dr. D's in the morning.

Who Are We

Philosphy We Strive For

Our mission at Rescue Warriors Corp is very simple. We are here to save one dog or one cat at a time until the need to euthanize healthy happy animals does not happen. We rescue from high kill shelters throughout the Midwest region of the United States. We rely solely on foster homes and private donations to care for our animals until they are adopted. We believe just like people, animals deserve the same loving and compassionate care. Just like our husbands did in the military , our hope is that no man , or in this case animal, get left behind!

Our Process

Upon arrival, all animals are spayed/neutered, brought up to date on vaccinations and heartworm testing, and given a thorough exam. Any medical issues are addressed. Before pets are placed up for adoption, they are behaviorally assessed in their foster home.
We do not have a central facility. We rely solely on foster homes. In order to meet a pet, an applicant must fill out an Adoption Application and be an approved adopter.

Team Members


Jessica founded the Corps back in 2012 after volunteering with several local animal rescues. She was introduced to the rescue world while trying to adopt a dog for her family. Through volunteering it opened her eyes to a world she never knew. She has two children who love to help care for their foster dogs & all three of them prefer to foster dogs that most would find a challenge and their favorite part of animal rescue is seeing animals once disguarded being the perfect fit in their now forever home. Jessica works full time for a major medical supplier where she is in senior operations. During her free time she is very involved in her children’s sports activities of baseball, softball, basketball, cheer and football whether she is coaching, a spectator or team mom. Jessica and her children have two dogs who both were rescued, Papi and Glitzy.


Vanessa joined the Corps in 2013 as a foster and was intrigued by the work that was being done. She quickly joined the board to help contribute to making a change in society. Joining the board of directors really opened her eyes about the problems that arise everyday from the overpopulation of dogs, like crowded shelters and high euthanasia rates. Animals have always been a passion of hers and now she lives her dream everyday. Since joining the Corps she has adopted 2 of her fosters which so happen to be pit bull mixes. She adores all dogs, but loves bringing awareness about how great pit bulls truly are.


Jackie has always had a love for animals growing up with dogs, birds and fish. First volunteering at a no kill shelter she decided wanted to do more for animals in need. In 2013 she began fostering with Rescue Warriors. She has a Frenchie named George and two FELV+ kitties Dutchess and Marie.


Ashley joined the corps in January 2014 as a foster and wanted to get more involved after she learned the statistic that 1.2 million healthy dogs/puppies are put to sleep each year simply because of overpopulation. She joined the board hoping to educate people the importance of rescuing and spaying/neutering their pets. Ashley has a passion for large breeds and adopted her Mastiff foster, Mister Eugene, in March 2015. Since owning Mister Eugene she has learned the struggle of trying to leave her house drool free. Ashley works full time as an accountant and is working towards getting her CPA.
