Our mission is to give each dog in our rescue the very best care, foster home, and opportunity possible to prepare for his or her forever home. We believe every dog deserves a chance, a friend, a family.


Who We Are

Be Fido's Friend is a 501c3 organization founded in 2011 by a group of five animal advocates and is a 100% volunteer run, foster-based, shelter-less rescue. Our intention is to end the Chicagoland canine homeless population through education, spay and neutering, and partnering of resources to improve the quality of life for dogs in need.


What We Do

Be Fido's Friend is dedicated to animal rescue. In addition to our primary goal of helping homeless dogs find forever homes, we:

  1. Rescue animals from situations that are abusive, endangering and neglectful and inform the public in order to put a stop to animal abuse and irresponsible breeding.

  2. Promote holistic and alternative therapies to allow our animals to live long, peaceful and happy lives.

  3. Educate the public on responsible pet ownership which includes the importance of spay/neutering. 

  4. Support, encourage and join forces with other animal welfare organizations.
