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.

  • History of being a responsible pet owner.
  • Proof of verified housing
  • Proof of home ownership.
  • Paid deposit.
  • Letter from landlord.

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)

Current Events and Urgent Fosters

This morning I went to pick up Lil Bit at the Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove where she had emergency surgery which was generously sponsored by a donor who requested to remain nameless. She is alive today because of his generosity & love for all of the animals at Chicago Animal Care & Control.

Lil Bit was surrendered to animal control on 7/30, pregnant. Over the weekend she began to deliver her puppies & sadly killed 3 of them in an effort we think to protect them from the other dogs in the shelter. She began to hemorrhage in the shelter because her uterus failed to contract.

Her babies are now being bottle fed & she will go to an isolation foster while she recovers from kennel cough. Lil Bit is all smiles & a happy girl who is not a fan of her cone today! Get well baby girl, the bet is yet to come to you!

Thank you Dr. Grendeau & all of the staff at Veterinary Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove & the CACC Dog Transfer Team for all of your help- it truly takes a village & ours amazes me at how quickly we were able to make this possible! Thank you Debbie for offering to foster her & again our generous donor!

Sometimes we get asked to help in some very sad situations & I'm going to tell you about one that we were recently asked to help with. We received a call from the shelter because we have a few fosters who do bottle babies. There was a dog in the shelter who was surrendered on 7/30. They soon discovered she was pregnant & over the weekend she delivered 6 puppies.

The shelter volunteers soon noticed something wasn't right & she had eaten two of her puppies. We don't know if they were failure to thrive or if the noisy shelter was stressing her out & she was trying to protect her babies as she is a great dog who is very loving & affectionate. A volunteer was able to pry a 3rd puppy from her mouth & separate the puppies from mom. At this point mom was a threat to her babies & they wanted to make sure they had a chance. We didn't have an open isolation home (one without any other dogs) & hesitated taking the babies without the mom as we NEVER, have never & will never leave a mom behind. They asked us to please take the babies ASAP & we promised that we will work our tails off to get mom out.

Well, last night, Lil Bit became urgent. She deliver a stillborn puppy over 24 hours after the last puppy delivered, she was Beginning to hemorrhage & is fighting a respiratory illness to boot. After a few phone calls a generous donor who asked to remain nameless offered to pay for any emergency medical care that she needed in order to get her out & give her a chance at life. At that point last night it was too late to pick her up during the after hours time so first thing this morning she was rushed out of CACC & brought over to the Buffalo Grove Specialty Center to be seen. She was immediately taken to the back & they are going to make sure there are no more puppies inside of her, run labwork to make sure she isn't septic, figure out why she is still bleeding & then she will go into isolation.

We would love to pull more dogs from Chicago, but the lack of isolation fosters hurts us as all dogs pulled from CACC need to go into isolation for 3 weeks because the risk of K9 influenza is possible. If you don't have any other pets & are interested in being an ISO foster please complete our volunteer application online at www.rescuewarriorscorp.org

Meet Margaret Garner. This little pipsqueak poodle required the least grooming of the bunch. She is a sweet little girl who wasn't sure about her first bath. The water scared her, but once we started to massage the shampoo into her hair, boy did she warm up to us & melted in our arms. She is at the vet now getting a much needed dental & being spayed. No more babies for this girl, she is officially retired today! Hallelujah!

She will be looking for a foster home beginning tomorrow. If you are interested in helping we would love your help. Fostering saves lives & doesn't cost a thing. We provide everything you need in order to care for your foster. If you would like foster her please apply online at www.rescuewarriorscorp.org.

If you cannot foster & would like to help please consider making a donation for her care via PayPal at info@rescuewarriorscorp.org

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.
