Saving animals and creating happy homes

View Adoptable Pets

The Rescue Vets is your Chicagoland animal rescue group devoted to helping pets find their forever homes.

Unlike most rescues, our team is led by experienced veterinarians who combine the love and medical treatment that every dog, cat, and pet deserves to start off on the right paw.


We Believe In

Happy Pets

As vets, we focus on total well-being, providing health care, comfort, and really good belly rubs.

Happy Owners

Taking care of a new pet is a lot of fun and work, which is why we offer ongoing support and wellness plans.

Happy Homes

Matching the right pet to the right home is key, and we provide expert guidance to help forge forever families.


Adoption Process

After you welcome home your furry family member, The Rescue Vets will stay by your side with the care and tips you need to help acclimate your pet, maintain healthy habits, and keep tails wagging for years to come.

An Update on COVID-19

In light of the current shelter in place and overall public health concerns, we'll be setting up one-on-one appointments when possible and will discuss where and how that will happen on an individual basis. Right now, we have a limited supply of puppies and have been inundated with applications. Once they are reviewed, you will be hearing from us.

WE THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND SUPPORT!! It makes our hearts swell to see the overwhelming love there is out there for all of these precious pets. We'll get back to each and everyone of you as soon as humanly possible. In the meantime, please stay safe and know that we're doing our very best! Thanks again!!
