Save-A-Pet has partnered with Rover’s Place in Highland Park to create a new program for its rescued dogs called “Camp Rover’s Place”. This program is an “overnight camp” intended to help expedite the dogs’ healing process, and to create more exposure for dogs looking for new homes and new families.
At Save-A-Pet, we provide our dogs with daily access to outdoor play yards, wading pools, agility equipment—as well as access to an indoor therapy room with a treadmill, puzzles, music and aromatherapy. These experiences are meant to help manage the unavoidable anxiety of living in a kennel environment. ‘Camp Rover’s Place’ is a natural extension of these programs.
Only one or two dogs will attend “Camp Rover’s Place” at any given time, to ensure personalized attention. Save-A-Pet dogs will have exclusive access to indoor play yards, protected from heat and inclement weather. Dogs will sleep in new, oversized kennels; in a room with far fewer dogs than the Save-A-Pet kennels. Each Save-A-Pet dog will be pampered with grooming services. Save-A-Pet dogs that need significant “de-stressing” will rest and sleep in Rover’s Place exclusive “Zen Den”. Lastly, all dogs will spend time with Rover’s Place in-house, full-time trainer. In these sessions, additional opportunities for mental stimulation and healing will naturally occur. These sessions can also provide recommendations for continued training and socialization plans, once each dog is adopted and transitioned into a forever home.
Rover’s Place is enthusiastically committed to no-kill rescue efforts. Accordingly, all “Camp Rover’s Place” activities for Save-A-Pet dogs will be generously donated.
“All of us at Rover's Place are thrilled to join forces with Save-A-Pet,” says owner Ray Schuler. “We take pride in caring for our clients and are excited that ‘Camp Rover’s Place’ will create an opportunity to bring a rescue dog closer to a new home.”

In the animal welfare community, hundreds of shelters across the country took a "Just One Day" pledge not to euthanize any savable animals on June 11, 2012. Because Save-A-Pet Adoption Center is already a no-kill rescue, we intended to save as many animals as possible on June 11.
We are very excited to announce that Save-A-Pet rescued 20 LIVES on Monday June 11. This marks Save-A-Pet's largest single-day intake in several years, and marks our continued 40-year commitment to no-kill rescue.
A horribly matted cocker spaniel. A feisty domestic short-hair kitten. An epileptic husky. A shy gray tabby/calico. An energetic rottie. In total, Save-A-Pet rescued 10 dogs and 10 cats on Monday June 11 from downtown Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. None were judged, tested or stereotyped based on their initial fears or shyness. All were at risk of being euthanized. Now, all will be available for adoption in the coming weeks.
All dogs and cats will complete their required quarantine period, and as always, all will be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, started on preventative medications, and showered with love from Save-A-Pet's amazing staff and volunteers. Please consider adopting one of the "Just One Day 20", when they become available.
What about their names? Glad you asked! Stay tuned to Save-A-Pet's Facebook page: You may just have the opportunity to help us name the new residents!
Thank you for helping Save-A-Pet in our ongoing quest for a No-Kill nation.
If you are unable to adopt or foster one of the "Just One Day 20", please consider making a donation to our Rescue Fund, which designates all gifts to help pay for the costs of rescuing these 20 dogs and cats.
