Chicagoland Rescue Intervention and Support Program (“CRISP”) provides low or no-cost services to help Chicago pet owners keep their pets rather than surrendering them to the city shelter. Keeping pets with owners that loves them not only preserves the human animal bond, but helps our animal control reserve their limited resources for pets that truly need them. 


CRISP was created to provide owners and pets with thoughtful and loving alternatives to the shelter. During a Canine Influenza outbreak in 2016, dogs became at high risk once they entered the shelter. While Canine Influenza has dissipated, high populations, lower adoptions, and other contagious diseases mean animals entering the shelters are still at high risk. CRISP aims at keeping pets out of the shelter, and keeping them in their homes where they belong.

Fight For Change

Adoption isn’t the only way to make an impact on a pet’s life. CRISP has long and short-term goals to change the way pet adoption is done in Chicagoland. We appreciate all donations and thank you in advance.

Get Involved

Like pets, donations come in all shapes and sizes. We are looking to team up with corporate sponsors to benefit you, us and most of all, our furry friends.  

Saving one pet won't change the world, but for that one pet the world will change forever.
