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!

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.

Other services included in the adoption fee:

Screwdriver came to us from southern Texas. He is a 17 lb 4 year old Schnauzer mix. This guy was found on the streets being attacked by two other dogs. His rescuer swooped him up and brought him to the vet to be checked out. He had no injuries from the fight but they did find out he had heartworms. He was given his first treatment in Texas and his second treatment here in Illinois. His past hasn't slowed him down at all. Screwdriver absolutely loves to play with his toys, get love and give it to his humans. He is an overall happy dog. He is selective with other dogs and can be a bit jealous if he's not the one getting all the attention. He is potty trained and is ready for his FURRever home! He is UTD on his vaccinations, is microchipped, dewormed and has been neutered.

WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTOS

Jägerbomb came to us from southern Texas. He is a 10 lb 2 year old Chihuahua mix. Our guess is that Minpin is part of his mix. He had a very tough start in life there. When he was found in Texas he had suffered terrible chemical burns over the majority of his back. The chemicals also ate away at his ears. We aren't sure what kind of human could do something like this to a helpless animal. What we do know is that we will find him a loving home that with shower him with the love and affection he deserves. He has been in our care since the third week in July and his skin has already shown improvement. The vets think is fur will all come back. Right now he has small tufts coming in. Jägerbomb absolutely loves to be scratched behind the ears. He will melt into you while you scratch away. He is timid at first but warms up quickly. Retreats to his crate when he feels unsure or scared. He is working on potty training and has been treated for heartworm and is ready for his FURRever home! He is UTD on his vaccinations, is microchipped, dewormed and has been neutered.

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 disregarded, 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.

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.
