We desperately need foster homes and volunteers to help us care for the homeless animals in our program.
*Volunteers and foster homes help us with animal care and socialization by providing positive interaction with the animals.
*Volunteers and foster homes also assist with transportation of animals to and from Vet visits.
Please help make a positive impact on the life of a homeless animal by volunteering!

Facebook friends....please visit & like Chicago Canine Concierge
Chicago Canine Concierge's goal is to help new pet parents and current pet owners find the BEST possible services in their area that fit their needs perfectly and for them to have to do as little research as possible. We want to be the one stop source that helps people find the services they require without having to make it stressful and time consuming.
Anytime someone contacts us for service referrals, we will ask where they heard about CCC, and anyone that comes from The Darla Foundation (formerly Cause 4 Paws Rescue - Chicago) and chooses one of our service providers we refer, we will save 10% of the referral fee collected from the chosen provider and send the money back to you!
Cats and dogs get cancer at the same rate humans do. Cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of our dogs and cats. Since we think of our pets as members of the family it is very devastating to hear about one of our own pets or anyone's pet who gets cancer.
Linda Bober, founder of The Darla Foundation knows this all too well as she lost her beloved pit bull Darla to brain cancer on April 30th, 2010. Read Darla's story below by clicking on her picture. The Darla Foundation asks you to take a moment....learn more about pet cancer, and then make your family and friends aware.
The Blue Buffalo Foundation for Pet Cancer Research, through the Pet Cancer Awareness (PCA) program, is devoted to raising awareness about the warning signs of cancer, as well as educating pet parents about ways to minimize the risk....
the Pet Cancer Awareness website
Once at the Pet Cancer Awareness site you may make a donation to help Blue Buffalo & Petco raise money to fight this terrible disease and to find a cure.
The Darla Foundation appreciates everyone who has reached out to us! Everyone has helped make a difference for the animals who are lucky enough to find their way to us!
The Darla Foundation operates solely with the help of donations from generous individuals. All donations are greatly appreciated and TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being.
4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
5. You have your work, your entertainment and your friends. I only have you.
6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
7. Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget.
8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy - ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: "I cannot bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death. Remember that I love you!
