All donations toward a memorial will directly support the rescue animals that we continue tosave everyday. Please feel free to be as creative or personalized as you want to be. It is our wish to help people experience healing during their grief by remembering the special times through a virtual memorial.

What an honor it is to your beloved friend, to give a gift to a rescue animal that is in such need.

It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.

And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.

Hey Everyone! Sadie & Wilson, the 2 once very urgent dogs that were dragged off to the Chicago City Shelter after their person died in her home STILL NEED YOU! They have been in boarding since they left Cacc!!! They are really coming out of their shells, but MUST LEAVE THE VET THIS WEEK!!! Famous Fido will no longer be able to use this facility & help others if we do not come up with a plan ASAP! These 2 dogs DESERVE to be in a loving home or long term foster where they can feel safe & come full circle!! Please do not forget about them now! If you are interested in adopting or fostering, please go to our website at www.famousfidorescue.com and fill out an application!
