Chicago English Bulldog Rescue (CEBR) (Park Ridge, IL)
Chicago English Bulldog Rescue has rehomed 800 bullies over a 10 year period and counseled hundreds of families to provide support, encouragement and training to keep bullies in their home. CEBR believes education is an important part of their mission, and as such, they try to educate both current and potential future bully families through community events whenever possible. CEBR will use the $500 grant from High Hopes® to help fund medical expenses for current fosters.

Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue (MSIR) (Gurnee, IL)
Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue (MSIR) is an all-volunteer rescue dedicated to fostering and finding homes for homeless Shiba Inu dogs into carefully screened, lifelong, and nurturing homes. In addition to rescue, MSIR volunteers provide medical care and/or rehabilitation for foster dogs and then attempt to match them with appropriate, permanent homes. In 2014, they were able to place 89 dogs in forever homes.
MSIR also educates the public about the Shiba Inu breed, the need for dog rescue and dog training, and the importance of spaying/neutering pets to prevent overpopulation.
