I Want to Surrender My Pet
During the hours of 3:30pm-7pm Wednesdays and 12pm-5pm on Friday-Sunday CRISP representatives will network your pet for rescue. Due to the high volume of pets in need, CRISP cannot guarantee that your animal will find rescue. Specifically large animals that are not social with all people and all animals likely will not find rescue through CRISP and will have to be impounded at Chicago Animal Care & Control. For this reason, we highly recommend exhausting all other options prior to bringing your pet to CRISP for help.
You must be a Chicago resident and bring your ID to surrender your pet. By law CRISP cannot help network stray animals.
