Welcome to Pal's Place Rescue

We're glad you're here!

About Us

Pal's Place is a small, no-kill canine shelter on the north side of Chicago. We rescue dogs from overburdened pounds in southern Illinois before their time is up. All dogs are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment once an approved application has been received. Please email us for an application!


Here at Pal's Place, we are committed to rescuing dogs from kill shelters and finding them loving homes. Please browse our adoption section to view dogs available for adoption, and go over the adoption process. If you choose adoption, you are saving a life. Consider giving a rescue a forever home, and a dog will give you a home full of love.

We Love Dogs!

We do what we do because we love dogs, and want to do everything in our power to rescue every dog in danger of being euthanized. After rescuing each dog, we place them in happy, loving homes. But let's face it! The dog chooses which people to share its heart with! Please visit our Success Stories page to view some of the heartwarming happy wagging-tail endings, each guaranteed to melt your heart.


The dogs we care for are in need and will deeply appreciate your donation. Pal's Place is always looking for dog food, treats, toys, cleaning supplies, detergent, blankets, leashes, and money for veterenarian bills. If you would like to donate, please contact us for more information.

Get Involved

You can always help an animal in need by getting involved as a volunteer, or by adopting a rescue. Many of our dedicated volunteers make a real difference in the lives of dogs in need. If you are interested, please consider temporarily caring for a dog until it is placed in a "forever" home. Visit our Foster a Dog page for more info.
