How We Use Your Donations

Every year, thousands upon thousands of Chicago’s pets are put to death for no reason. These unwanted, sometimes abused, sometimes sick animals are the result of careless breeding and thoughtless actions. Owners relinquish their animals to shelters for absurd reasons, and we have heard them all: “He has black fur and I just put in white carpet!” "he's untrained," or "I'm moving and my new landlord said no pets."It is the goal of New Leash On Life Chicago to find permanent, loving home for these forgotten animals, but we can’t do it alone. It is a mammoth task. We have a fantastic band of volunteers who help with all aspects of our organization, but love doesn’t buy all the necessities to keep us running and successful. This is where you come in — this is where you can help!

2014 Allocation of Resources

NLOL operates solely on donations, and every cent we raise goes directly to our dogs for medical care, food, supplies, and boarding. We can do this because we are volunteer-run and do not have a facility, and instead rely exclusively on foster homes and partner boarding facilities to keep our dogs safe while they wait for their forever home. As you can imagine, our veterinary costs quickly add up and comprise the largest portion of our expenses each year. Each our dogs receives a full medical exam, spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip, and we pay for any necessary treatment or surgery that may arise while they are still under our wing, no matter how expensive. Since they are opening their homes to one of our pups, we also ensure all foster homes have the supplies they need, including crates, food, toys, and even dog training when needed.

New Leash On Life Chicago simply cannot do this without the help of our donors. On behalf of all the dogs saved and those still dreaming of rescue, we thank you for your support!
