Fresh Start Animal Rescue

We are an Illinois State Licensed, 501 (c)(3) non-for-Profit, No-kill Animal rescue located in Belvidere, Illinois. We work with high-kill animal shelters and animal control facilities where the animals just don’t have much of a chance to find a loving home and live a full and happy life. We are a mixed breed rescue, many of our “Paperless Pals” have passed their AKC Canine Good Citizenship tests or are therapy dogs, some have joined agility contests and flyball challenges, the rest have melded into loving homes as a joyful part of the family. You just never know who will be the next Pet Star in someone’s life!
