Redemption Road Rescue Rehab Inc (aka R4) is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization based in Lake County, Illinois. R4 functions as an all breed and ages, dog and cat rescue that specializes in behavioral training and rehabilitation. We are a professionally operated nonprofit dog and cat rescue run by certified dog trainers. We believe the solution to “difficult” animals cannot just be euthanasia. Our mission is to place dogs and cats that have undergone our rehabilitation program with responsible, reliable, and devoted owners. Our training specialty is centered in dog behaviors and understanding the canine mind. We take in all breeds, all ages and work with domesticated felines and feral cat colonies as well. Our expectations of adopters: 1- Consider the animal as an individual with their own personality and behaviors. 2- Be willing to learn, ask questions, and implement training into their daily routine. 3- Work alongside our team to prepare their home to provide the best environment for their new family member.  

R4 is 100% volunteer-run and foster-based, and we also utilize the services of Full Circle Dog Training. Every dog and cat under our care lives in a loving environment that cater to all their needs from the day they join our pack until the day they are adopted. As a non-profit, R4 relies on donations, fundraisersgrantsand sponsorships to allow our organization to fulfill our mission to animals in need, so please consider donating today.

R4's adoptable dogs and adoptable cats are located throughout Lake County, McHenry County, and Cook County of IL. We closely network within Island Lake, Wauconda, Mundelein, Waukegan, and North Chicago as well.
