Forget Me Not 

Animal Rescue

Forget Me Not Rescue (FMNR) is a registered nonprofit organization committed to rescuing, providing veterinary care, and rehoming abandoned, abused, and neglected companion animals. Run 100% by volunteers, FMNR is donation-driven and virtually all funds go directly to animal care. All our animals are cared for in foster homes around the Chicagoland area.

Our furry friends need a safe and loving place to stay while they wait for their forever homes. The number of animals we can save is directly related to the number of foster homes we have. The process is straightforward: You provide a caring environment and we offer guidance and pay for their medical care!

Fostering isn’t right for you? Join our crew for transport, events, fundraisers, or office work. If you are willing, we'll find a position that's a good fit!

Forget Me Not Rescue is a 100% donation driven and volunteer operated organization and we need support from people like you to fuel our motto to Save The Forgotten.

Every donation - no matter how small - will make a big difference in the lives of these animals! Your contribution helps provide medical care for the many cats and dogs saved from euthanasia lists and off the streets. By working together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of these animals and the community as a whole.

Thank you for considering supporting Forget Me Not Rescue. Together, we can Save the Forgotten and give them a chance at a better life.

If you're looking for a new furry friend to add to your family, FMNR has many cats and dogs available for adoption. All of our animals receive exceptional care and attention in our foster homes ensuring that they are healthy and happy before they’re adopted. We’d love to help you find the perfect match for your lifestyle and personality. From playful kittens to loyal dogs, there is no shortage of love and companionship at FMNR! Adopting a pet not only gives you a new family member, but it also helps support our mission to provide a safe and loving environment for animals in need. So why wait?

We host a variety of events throughout the year that cater to different interests and age groups.
