In the year 2017 BC (before COVID-19), Second City Canine Rescue began the search for a place to call home. Three years later, and only 10 days before Illinois' Shelter in Place orders were issued, we signed the contract and picked up our keys. We had found a new home – an abandoned former restaurant that desperately needed an overhaul – for our endless journey in saving the pups, and had grand plans to immediately launch a Capital Campaign. Of course, the universe had other things in store that no one could anticipate.
So, here we are five months later, when fundraising has never been more of a challenge, and when dogs continue to need our help just as much. But we’re not ones to back down from a fight. Our scrappy SCCR crew sprang into action out of our dedication to bettering the lives of our furry friends, saving money by doing demo ourselves while increasing our adoptions and lifesaving efforts by 75 percent.
Pre-Sales are over.
