Windy City Rescue has some of the best volunteers I’ve come across in rescue. A few months ago our Volunteer Coordinator, Breeanne, had an idea to do a gift basket project with elementary school kids in our hometown. This project had classes collect items for a specific rescue dog such as blankets, toys, beds, treats etc. Then we brought the dog into the classrooms to receive their baskets and talk to the kids about rescue.
The teachers, kids and their families who participated in this project were truely amazing. We collected so many great items that we are planning on donating some to other rescues in town. The thoughtfulness and generosity that went into these baskets was really heartwarming. It’s hard to imagine that some of these dogs come into rescue with nothing, not even a single blanket after being with a family for years, but it happens more often then not. Its a great moral booster to see that there are people who care in our community and to know that each of our foster dogs have new gifts for Christmas.

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.). If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation. Thank you.
