We are a 100% volunteer run, foster based rescue. We rescue “bully” breeds from high kill shelters and urgent situations throughout the Chicagoland area. These are dogs who have been discarded, abused, abandoned and exploited by society. When we bring a dog into our rescue, they are making a “pit stop” to their forever home.
Each dog is fully vetted, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and treated if needed. We then place them in licensed foster homes where they learn socialization skills and basic obedience while being showered with love and affection from their foster. Chicago Pit Stop Rescue recognizes that rescue doesn’t end with pulling a dog from an animal control facility and listing them as “safe” on a social media page. Pulling a dog is just the beginning of the rescue process. Whether a dog is with us a day or several months, our rescue is committed to providing a loving “pit stop” to each of our dogs while they await their forever home.
Chicago Pit Stop Rescue is a Not for Profit Corporation registered with the State of Illinois and licensed by the State of Illinois Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Health and Welfare.
