Young At Heart Pet Rescue
“Chicagoland’s Senior Pet Adoption Option,” Young At Heart Pet Rescue is a volunteer-based nonprofit that rescues, vets, fosters, and rehomes dogs and cats ages 5 and up. All Young At Heart pets come from Illinois municipal pounds with a high rate of euthanasia among older pets.
Young At Heart takes in companion animals “too old” to be adopted from traditional shelters, providing them with a real chance at a forever home with a loving family.
A 501(c)3 no-kill organization, Young At Heart receives no federal or state funding and relies solely on private donations, fundraisers, and grants to support its work. Its mission is threefold:
• To find a home for every adoptable dog and cat that comes through its doors
• To educate the public on the benefits of adopting an older pet
• To reduce the euthanasia rate among older pets in Illinois
