About CPR Fund
The CPR Fund K9 Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to ending the needless euthanasia of adoptable pets. Our all-volunteer network of administrative personnel, transporters, event planners, grant writers and, last but certainly not least, foster families works tirelessly to decrease the euthanasia rate in northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area.
Incorporated in 2002 by a small group of EMT's and paramedics, the CPR Fund went straight to work rescuing dogs set to be euthanized at local shelters. All rescues receive the best veterinary care available and are placed in loving foster homes until their forever families are found. While in foster care, CPR Fund's rescues are housebroken, crate-trained, socialized, leash trained and taught basic house manners. This regimen may seem a little too demanding for dogs that are often scared and confused, abused and neglected but the reality is, all this training improves their confidence and makes the eventual transition to their forever home much less stressful for both dog and owner.
Over the years the faces may have changed but the mission remains the same- save adoptable pets from needless euthanasia. And the CPR Fund has done just that. Since our inception 14 years ago we have kept over 2,000 animals from losing their lives simply because they had no place to call home.
