Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

On March 10, 2020, Second City Canine Rescue purchased a building in Palatine, IL that will become our headquarters and Adoption Center. Our goal is to increase our effectiveness by a minimum of 25% (measured in lives saved) during the first year this center is open.

SCCR is currently building relationships with donors, veterinarians, adoption locations, and our volunteers in order to increase our effectiveness in locating and responsibly rescuing canines. We are also aiming to expand our selection areas to the greater midwest area.

Over the past year and a half we have worked to create relationships with businesses in animal related industries. Strategic partnerships have been developed to reduce veterinary costs and with pet supply stores to receive pet food donations. Lowering these costs enables us to allocate funds elsewhere and improve our overall impact.

We continue to utilize connections within the animal rescue community to seek out capable volunteers to bring in new ideas and skills to continue our success.

Since our inception in 2011 our organization has grown beyond anything the founders could have imagined. Over 3,500 lives have been saved to date, and the opening of our Adoption Center will allow us to increase that number even more.
