Mission Statement:

Found is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue and re-homing center focused on individualized medical and behavioral rehabilitation for homeless dogs and cats that would otherwise be euthanized

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

In 2009, Chicago alone destroyed over 10,000 dogs and cats who were healthy, or had a treatable behavioral or medical condition because no one was willing to give them the extra rehabilitation and care they needed. As a no-kill center, Found is diligently working to change that through our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home.
Through this vital work, Found:
-saves lives
-enhances the human-animal bond
-ensures successful and long-term re-homing
-gives back to the community through humane education programs

Program History:

Found has been in operation since December 2009.


Each year, Found hosts Day of the Dog, a fall block party and fundraiser for pets and pet lovers. In January, Found will host it's first annual Humane Awards.
