Welcome to Young At Heart Pet Rescue, Chicagoland’s senior pet adoption option! We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of mature and senior dogs and cats. 100% of our adoptable pets are rescued from open-admission shelters where their age makes them first in line for euthanasia. We rescue them, rehabilitate them, and place them into loving homes all over the Midwest. We are advocates for the grey muzzles, continually striving to improve the adoption rate for older dogs and cats. Through a small army of foster homes, volunteers, and with the community’s support, we are saving the lives of homeless senior pets, one grey muzzle at a time. What can you do to help? Adopt | Foster | Donate | Volunteer. One person can make a difference!
