Stop by Oswego Petco, 3066 U.S. 34, Oswego, IL 60543 to meet some of our kittens available for adoption anytime during normal Petco business house. The kittens below are already adopted, but we have others.
Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue is a foster based rescue which means we don’t have an actual physical building. All of our rescued animals are cared for by wonderful volunteers in their homes called foster homes. Our foster homes are located all over the Chicagoland, but primarily in the SW suburbs of Chicago. Because our animals are cared for in people’s homes we do require an adoption application prior to visiting so that we can learn more about you. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Angels On Wheels is a Non-Profit-EIN 27-0727370, Illinois State Licensed-#13826, Dog and Cat Rescue, and we have been granted our 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Status which means we are exempt from taxation under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. Your gift and adoption donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. You will be able to find our animals on Petfinder, Adopt-a-pet and many other web sites. We have many partner vets: Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic is the rescue’s primary vet. We are also proud to be partnering with Central Bark Doggy Day Care in Oswego. They foster many pooches for us as well as hold our fundraisers at their facility.

We are a foster-based adoption organization composed of a group of animal loving volunteers saving animals from death row and giving them a second chance at life. No one gets paid for the work they do, just the gratification that some will be saved from a very cruel death and find loving homes. These animals are confused, frightened, and don’t understand why the people they trusted and loved have abandoned them. We work with many of the staff and volunteers in many states at these facilities as well as other rescuers, who work endless hours getting the animals to safe places. Transporting these animals is a huge part of rescue, and help is always needed with transportation. We always need foster homes to help us save more. We can only save as many as we have room for. Email us if you are interested in learning more about fostering a rescued puppy or kitten.
Our goal is to educate the public on; understanding that pet ownership is a privilege and commitment, the importance of spaying and neutering, puppy mill awareness, and providing pet owners with helpful information during these tough economic times with CHOICES other then surrendering with low cost vaccine clinics and Spay Illinois.
We are always in need of foster homes. Many very young kittens and puppies find themselves at a high kill animal control facilities and desperately need out. Sadly many do not make it. Fosters home are in great need to save these babies.
Puppy Season is always upon us, and adult dogs are always needing a rescue. We need more foster homes to help care for the many puppies and dogs that need help. The more foster homes we have, the more babies we can save. WE NEED YOU!!!! Please fill out a foster care application form under the foster tab!!
A very special thank you to one of our wonderful Angels, Jufi Haft at Central Bark Doggy Day Care in Oswego. Central Bark Doggy Daycare fosters many of our animals and helps us to find them wonderful homes. Central Bark Doggy Day Care is not only a fun place for your dog to go, but they have a certified dog trainer, and groomer. It’s like sending your child to a playground with a psychologist, and a hairstylist…how cool is that!
With heavy hearts we mourn the ones that we could not save, and try to save the next in hopes that others will find forever homes. Rest baby, you are safe and warm now. This baby was rescued by Angels On Wheels and now has a wonderful family of his his own to love.
PLEASE DON’T BUY FROM A PET STORE OR BREEDER WHEN THOUSANDS OF SHELTER PETS DIE EVERY DAY.
Every day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all of the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animal and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don’t ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a puppy mill, and remind people to support and ADOPT from a shelter or rescue.
Shelter animals are very affectionate, forgiving, loyal companions just crying for someone to hold and love them. Please join us in the fight to save their lives by getting more and more of these babies adopted and fewer put to sleep! You can help by encouraging people to spay and neuter their pets!
Did you know that black dogs, puppies, cats and kittens have the highest rate and sometimes the first in line to be put down? This is know as the Black Dog or Cat Syndrome.
If you think you can watch this, it is a video of what is still happening today in some of the high kill facilities that we get our rescued animals from, specifically those that use gas to euthanize. This video is truly what drove me to take another step towards doing more for these helpless animals.
“So many innocent faces full of hope. So many pets are euthanized at animal control facilities (dog pounds). Why? Because they had no home, no one to love and care for them. Many of these pets once had homes, but for whatever reason, their families surrendered them to animal control. Most of the very young kittens and puppies were born because of irresponsible pet owners who did not bother to spay or neuter their pets. Please consider what it means to be a responsible pet owner — spay and neuter your pets and know that when you adopt a pet, you are making a COMMITMENT to that pet for the rest of its life.”
Please Remember: when you adopt you will be saving TWO LIVES; the one you just adopted and the one YOU JUST MADE ROOM FOR. If you can’t adopt, donations are greatly appreciated, volunteers are always welcome, and foster homes are urgently needed.
GET INVOLVED, THERE ARE MANY WAYS!
See our Adoption Information page for a list of animals you can save today by adopting, or our You Can Help Section. If you are interested in getting involved with fostering animals too young to be adopted, or others that are awaiting their forever homes, please contact us.
