Chicago's no-kill shelter for cats, rabbits and dogs

Be a Buddy

Through Red Door’s Buddy System, you can show your compassion for rescued animals by becoming an online buddy to an animal. A donation of $28 or more helps provide a needy animal with food, shelter and veterinary care prior to being placed in a new and loving home.

Consider giving a Buddy System gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays! We can customize every Buddy posting with a special message from you.
