Adoptable Pets in Illinois
Angels on Wheels Animal Rescues was founded in 2009 by Susan Pratl. We are a no-kill, foster-based adoption organization located in the SW suburbs of Chicago dedicated to the care and adoption of homeless pets. We are composed of a group of animal loving volunteers saving animals from death row and giving them a second chance at life. We do not have a physical building for you to come and meet the animals, this is the reason you don’t see an actual address. All of our rescued animals are cared for in “foster homes”. Foster home means families open their homes to an animal in need and care for the animals until they find a forever home. We do not euthanize for health unless it is adviced by the vet due to quality of life and the issue that is beyond what our vets can do. We do not euthanize for space, and our animals have as much time as they need until a family adopts them. Our foster homes are located all over the Chicagoland, but primarily in the SW suburbs of Chicago. Because our animals are cared for in people’s homes we do require an adoption application prior to visiting so that we can learn more about you. There is no time limit for any animal’s stay with us. We are committed to finding the right home, and to taking the time to carefully match the needs and the personalities of both people and adopted animals. If your interested in meeting any of our animals, please can click on the “adoptables’ tab to read more information or the “forms” tab to complete the on-line adoption application. You can can also check out our facebook page. We post many of our animals on facebook even before we put them on petfinder.

FOSTERS HOMES ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED TO SAVE MORE ANIMALS. We can only save an animal with a foster home. Please consider opening your heart and your home to an animal in need. We provide food, crate, xpen, all the medical, toys and bones. If your considering fostering, please fill out a foster application which is located under the “forms” tab. We would love to talk with you more about fostering.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
