"Saving the life of one animal may not change the world,
but the world will surely change for that one animal"
author unknown

There are many items you can donate to help support Illinois Animal Rescue, including:

Illinois Animal Rescue is in need of vans to transport the animals to safety. Please consider donating a gently used van to our fight to rescue the animals.

We are always in needs of additional crates and condos to transport and show our animals. Crates and condos can be dropped off at any of our events. 

We are always on the lookout for puppy, dog, cat and kitten food. We will accept unopened wet or dry food. 

Many of the animals we rescue have never seen or used a toy. Toys help the animals relax in their new homes and bond with their fosters. They also help the animals exercise. 

Other Supplies 
We are happy to accept donations of kitty litter, litter boxes, leashes, grooming supplies, food dishes, cat trees, poop bags, wee pads, puppy pens and blankets. 


Most organizations will not accept animals that are not vaccinated, treated for fleas and ticks, dewormed and tested for Heartworm Disease (dogs) and Feline Leukemia/FIV (cats). The rescuers are paying for these things out of their own pockets, for fear that the animals may not even be considered. If you can help donate at least one item below, you will have saved a life. Please click on any picture below for item and order information. IAR and all of the rescuers thank you, and the animals do, too!
