Welcome to Wish Upon A Rescue!

Wish Upon a Rescue is a non-profit Illinois based animal rescue focused on saving the lives of homeless animals while providing the community with extensive education, outreach, and support. We believe in going above and beyond the status quo of rescue and are committed to providing innovative care and support for our animals physical and emotional health. We believe that all animals deserve a second chance at life regardless of breed, age, or physical ability.

Thank you for visiting our website!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to get our latest updates. We have so many amazing things planned and would love to have all of you follow along in our journey of rescue and education.

Thank you so much for your interest and we hope to have your support as we go forward!
