Current Rescues We Are Proud to Work With

We at Wheatland take pride in our efforts to encourage pet owners to consider adoption. We work with wonderful Chicagoland rescue organizations like:

Naperville Area Humane Society

Naperville Area Humane Society is a nonprofit limited-admission animal shelter for dog and cat adoption, foster care, and owner surrenders serving the western suburbs of Chicago. The staff works diligently to match the needs of each pet with a family eager to adopt a dog or cat.

ROMP Rescue

ROMP is primarily an Italian Greyhound rescue. However, they bring us many other breeds, including Maltese, Yorkies, and Chihuahuas. They rescue these dogs from some very unfortunate situations and have wonderful groomers that save their skin and coats from the wear and tear of puppy mills and negligent homes. Some are also surrendered from loving homes when an owner passes away or cannot have the dog due to life circumstances. Many have particularly troublesome dental health, and we generally neuter these animals, treat some chronic conditions, and performs many dental surgeries.

As Good As Gold

As Good As Gold specializes in Golden Retrievers. The dogs have a wide array of stories, but generally are very adoptable and sweet. We perform services ranging from routine preventive care such as vaccines, neutering and oral surgery.


Wags 2 Wishes

Wags 2 Wishes is an all breed animal rescue that started in 2013. Located in Plainfield, Illinois, their mission is to rescue abused, sick, abandoned and forgotten animals facing euthanasia due to overcrowding or being too medically intense for the correct facility/owner and provides a loving and secure transition into our rescue program.

Rover Rescue

Rover Rescue is a network of volunteer foster homes - they do not have a central shelter. Meet a dog from their 'adoptable pet page' by contacting the person listed at the end of the dog's biography. This person will help you decide if the dog would be a good match for your family and if so then set up a time for your family to meet the dog.
