On October 2nd, a school bus crashed through the front of Wright-Way Rescue in Niles, Illinois. Fortunately, no one was on the school bus and all volunteers and pets were safe. After 10 years of placing over 15,000 pets in homes, we found ourselves homelss. However, after months of dedication and support from the community, Wright-Way Rescue finally found its forever home and will be moving to Morton Grove in the spring.

Wright-Way Rescue was started in 2003 by Christy Anderson at Southern Illinois University. She would save dogs from euthanasia, house them one-at-a-time in her dorm room, and place them in homes near Chicago. Ten years later, our modest rescue finds more dogs and puppies forever homes than any other no kill rescue in the State of Illinois, and we operate on 10% of the budget.

Wright-Way plans to start renovations on the 13,000 square-foot warehouse immediately, but we are in desperate need of donations to complete necessary renovations to meet the needs of our shelter. The difficult journey is not over, and we need your help. Please consider making a donation to Wright-Way Rescue today.

We have received tremendous support from our neighborhood, and Wright-Way is so thankful. We have a long road ahead. Help us meet our goal of raising $1.5 million for our capital campaign, Rescue Wright-Way.
