Strawberry Fields Animal Rescue Illinois

Mission, Vision and Values


Our mission is to provide refuge for senior animals and animals needing hospice care. We aim to provide education, assistance and support to the public to help people better understand and care for their companion animals. We do more than just rescue, we DRIVE change.



We focus on helping the most vulnerable animals; senior animals, those near the end of life and the sick. Our vision is a world where all vulnerable animals get to live out their lives in a loving home to receive the care they need.  We strive to support this vision by:

  • Creating a robust network of foster caregivers to provide loving care to vulnerable    animals in a home environment.

  • Building a center or sanctuary to support the needs of vulnerable animals – to provide needed shelter and veterinary care in a comfortable low-stress setting

  • Developing a hospice care program with a network of trained foster caregivers.

  • Providing a sizable resource network as well as an extensive outreach program for pet owners in underserved communitites.

Principles and Values

  • High Quality Animal Care: The welfare of our animals comes first and foremost. We endeavor to provide the animals we rescue with high quality medical and behavioral care. We aim to place animals into appropriately skilled foster homes and into loving adoptive homes that are able to meet the animal's needs.

  • High Quality Customer Service: Our team members endeavor to treat all people with the utmost respect and highest level of customer service. This includes our foster families, potential adopters, supporters and any member of the general public we come in contact with.
