Our Mission Statement

To rescue and rehome senior dogs and cats, to educate the public on the benefits of adopting older pets and their care, to reduce the euthanasia rate for senior pets in the state of Illinois.

Young at Heart Pet Rescue is dedicated to the following goals:

  • Rescuing stray and relinquished senior animals from animal shelters who have not been adopted and are scheduled to be euthanized. Young at Heart takes the animals who are considered “too old” for traditional shelters and rescues and provides them with a chance at a forever home, either with a new loving family, or through our Sanctuary Program.
  • Securing a no-kill adoption center and sanctuary where rescued senior pets can be safely sheltered without the threat of euthanization until adoptive families are found for them, or where they may live out their days surrounded by the best care and love at our sanctuary.
  • Providing medical care to neglected, abused and injured senior animals.
  • Rehabilitating hard-to-adopt senior animals and finding them loving homes.
  • Promoting the benefit of adopting older pets, and educating the public on the care of senior dogs and cats.
  • Educating children and adults alike on responsible pet guardianship.
  • Creating an alliance with local open-admission shelters and animal rescues to improve the adoption rate of senior pets.

Young at Heart Pet Rescue is a 100% non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of senior dogs and cats. Young at Heart Pet Rescue is run by like-minded professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help save the lives of these animals. We are a 501(c) non-profit. Our Tax ID is 20-2476194.
