About Found
Found (4130 N. Rockwell St., Chicago; (773) 539-3880) is a non-profit rescue and re-homing center whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need. Chicago destroyed more than 10,000 dogs and cats in 2009 that were healthy or had a treatable condition because no one was willing to give them the care they needed.

Found is working to prevent dogs and cats from being euthanized by focusing on individualized medical and behavioral rehabilitation. For more information, to make a donation, to adopt a pet in need, or to volunteer, visit http://www.foundchicago.org/.
