COPE Rescue is no-kill, all volunteer, not-for-profit animal shelter established in 2003 in Joliet, Illinois. COPE is committed to rescuing abandoned  and/or injured pets who are in need of forever homes.  COPE is also dedicated to spaying and neutering as many cats as possible, providing the care for colonies of feral cats, removing non-feral strays from the streets and placing them into our adoption program whenever possible. 

COPE is 100% volunteer managed and operated, and all funds provided for the animals go toward the medical care, spay and neutering and daily care until the pet is adopted into a forever family.

COPE Animal Rescue depends on donations from caring individuals like you in order to provide the care, medical attention, and spay/neuters for the animals that come our way.  Our adoption fee just does not stretch that far.  It costs alot of money to provide the much needed care these homeless pets needs.

Because COPE is working toward rehoming and caring for all the animals that come our way, we require volunteers to make this happen.  A successful animal rescue organization is because of the dedication and commitment of our wonderful volunteers.

Check out our Volunteer Page to see ways that you can help us be more successful.

There are many folks that are saddened by the overwhelming population of homeless and unwanted pets in your community.  Many of you have made a big difference in the lives of one of these companions by adopting one of them.  Many others are not able to adopt, or already have your house full.  The good news is ... YOU CAN STILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  A donation of any amount makes a difference.  No donation is too small.

Donating is not just about money.  Visit our Donate Page to see other ways you can donate.
