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.

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)

This morning I was asked if we could place a 7 month old male English Bulldog who was being sold on Craigslist in Missouri. The person who had him had rescued him from someone who previously had him chained 24/7 outside which many of who know the breed know outdoors for any length of time is not safe. Due to his coloring my friend was on it, as he would be a dog who would spend the rest of his life being studded out.

When I was first asked I knew I & a few other volunteers wouldn't be able to make the trip to Missouri within the next few days as there is so much going on. I reached out to a few other rescue friends & they were unable to help, as well. So, I explained my situation & how I would like to help, but the obstacles that were in our way, but within minutes we were able to not only secure his rescue but put a plan into place.

That being said, I'ld like to introduce to you Travi which is short for Traviaso which means trouble maker (proper spelling is Travieso). He is being fostered temporarily in Missouri & will join us in Illinois on Wednesday. We couldn't be happier & Im grateful for everyone who swept into action so quickly to help us secure his safety!

I'd like to take a minute to tell you about Blackie whom was adopted from us from Oklahoma back in 2015 when he was 1 year old. He was adopted by a lovely woman who just two weeks prior had lost her husband to COPD, they had always been large dog owners but she fell head over heels in love with Blackie and adopted him. His new name is Wrigley and sadly, she too was recently diagnosed with COPD and contacted us because it has become increasingly difficult to take him for walks. She was devastated because Wrigley had brought so much joy to her and helped her thru one of the most difficult times of her life.

I was able to spend time with them today when I picked him up. She told me he is 100% potty trained, he loves children, barely barks Enless someone walks by their patio, but that's normal. He's a little timid around men, but has been an absolute joy.

He is now 3 years old & a schnauzer mix.

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

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

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

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

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.
