Since 2017, we have led an effort to save the lives of all dogs in need. Although we may not be able to save every dog at once, we believe that we can still make a difference saving one life at a time.



Mama Zoey was found as a stray in Will County IL. She was very far along in her pregnancy very urgently needing rescue or the possibility of her being put to sleep would have happened. Dan and Kendall heard of Mama Zoey needing to be saved and without hesitation pulled her on June 27th, literally within hours of her being put to sleep. Then on July 4th, Mama Zoey went into labor and started giving birth to the first of 11 beautiful healthy puppies!!! This rescue is an avenue for those that care and love Mama Zoey and want to see her grow as a great mama, watch her puppies grow and celebrate these 12 lives that would have never been able to be if Dan and Kendall hadn't stepped up and saved them!!

Thank you to Dan and Kendall for saving Mama Zoey. They rescue in honor of their treasured dog Rocco who was diagnosed with cancer and lost his battle. In Rocco's memory, they are determined to help ANY dog in need no matter what: pregnant, injured, homeless, abused or neglected.

Our Mission

Mama Zoey and Puppies Rescue strives to give a voice to all the discarded dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. To lend a hand and give our heart in everything that we do. We promise to leave no dog behind and do our best to get them into a foster program, where we will find them a forever home. We are a foster based rescue and without the help of donations, fosters, volunteers and amazing crew members; none of this would be possible. We want to help as many dogs as we possibly can through all walks of life. We will never turn down any breed or age.
