I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment.

My name is Patrick & I live in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. I've had dogs & cats my whole life, currently having a 17 year old calico named Jadzia. Love my doggies too but Jadzia doesn’t approve so I make up for it by dog sitting for friends & family, as well as taking volunteer opportunities. On top of that, I love being outside & walking, even when the weather isn't so great.

Dog Boarding in Oak Park

The village of Oak Park, found adjacent to Chicago’s West Side, is home to a thriving community of dog owners and animal lovers. There are also a number of inspirational animal welfare and rescue organizations operating throughout Oak Park and the wider Chicago area, each of which is committed to saving the lives of at-risk canines and ending pet homelessness.

Take Animal Care League, for example. This limited-admission shelter in Oak Park has been helping homeless animals since 1973. It gives homeless dogs, cats, and other small animals the medical attention, food, shelter, and love they need to get back on their paws. These animals are then matched with loving owners through Animal Care League’s highly successful adoption program.

As Animal Care League is a not-for-profit organization, it is only able to protect and help animals thanks to the generous donations it receives from the wider community. Volunteers and new foster families are also always welcome.

Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation is another group dedicated to the wellbeing of Chicago’s canine population. Founded in 2001, the foundation’s goal is to help find permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs right throughout Chicago. It has saved the lives of more than 6,000 dogs and cats since that time, giving them a second and much-deserved chance to find happiness.

Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation takes in dogs from open-intake facilities, from rural rescue partners who can’t provide adoption services, and from families who can no longer care for them. These animals are then given the specialized medical treatment and emotional and behavioral support they need, before being adopted out to loving, responsible owners.

Sounds grrr-eat, huh?
