The Bottom Line: Our annual fund raiser was a big success again this year. Nothing beats out seeing animals find their furever homes!

SHRED4RESCUES 2017 was our biggest and best event yet! “Team Citadel” would like to thank all the people and rescue groups who participated and volunteered to make this event possible.

We have exciting news to share about this year's event! SHRED4RESCUES 2017 surpassed the amount of money raised in years past to be biggest fundraiser to date. With over 20,000lbs of paper shredded and recycled, and 267 total vehicles that came out to the event, this made our event incredibly successful! However, the most exciting part of all, we were able to give two attending rescues dogs their furever homes. Sugarbee and Lucie from Magnificent Mutts & Meows were adopted last Saturday and are in the homes of their new loving and caring owners.

A big THANK YOU to all that sponsored our raffle gifts this year: Fuller House, Oberweis, AMC Theatres, Pet Supplies Plus, GameStop, Jewel-Osco, West Suburban Veterinary, iTunes, Bentleys Pet Stuff, Happy Dog Barkery, Suburbanite Bowl and Pitty Que. We have selected winners, and they have been contacted to pick up their prizes! 

Be sure to check out our NEW, weekly FURSday Facebook posts about rescues who are available for adoption.

Next year’s SHRED4RESCUES is scheduled for June 2018, so be sure to check our web-site for the actual date. Be sure to mark it on your calendars and come out to support our rescue groups and see “Team Citadel” in action!
